Henrietta Lacks Memorial Lecture

Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 9:00am to 9:00am

Johns Hopkins University Turner Auditorium 720 N. Rutland Avenue, Baltimore, MD

The goal of this event is to describe the reach and complexity, both biomedically and ethically, of the story of Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells as well as to provide some insight into the past, present, and future of the conduct of clinical research. By honoring Mrs. Lacks and the positive global impact of HeLa cells through this lecture series, the ICTR hopes to acknowledge, thank and honor everyone who participates in the clinical research process. This event is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required. Early registration is advised as space is limited. The program will feature a discussion by Gary Gibbons, MD, Director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in the National Institutes of Health, followed by a Q&A session. There will also be scholarship and community award presentations.
