Grace Auditorium

SPEAKER:

David Spector, Ph.D.
CSHL Professor, Director of Research

Cell biologist and cancer researcher Dr. David Spector brings his knowledge, experience and perspective about HeLa cells - the star of Rebecca Skloot's best-selling book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" - to a free public lecture and discussion at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Join us to get a glimpse of the tremendous impact this cell line has made on medical research and the discoveries that it contributed to both at CSHL and at institutions around the world. Dr. Spector will also discuss the issues of bioethics and informed consent raised by the book, and how they affect current research.
