Tuesday, January 27
12:30-2 p.m.
3rd floor, Library, TLC Building

Grab a light snack and learn more about The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, why Rebecca Skloot wrote the book, explore visual representations of HeLa cells, and pick up a free copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks while supplies last.

We also invite you to welcome cell culture research and history expert Dr. James Trosko and participate in an engaging discussion exploring the “then and now” of human medical research and the use of human cells for cancer research; and the constant tension between human rights, ethics, and the need for human specimens in human medical research.

Dr. Trosko, Professor Emeritus at MSU, has over 50 years of experience using cell culture to understand the etiology of cancer and chemical damage to cells, as well as figuring out basic mechanisms inherent with normal cells. He created the term “epigenetic toxicology” and performed research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, MSU College of Human Medicine, McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research, and was of Chief of Research at the Radiation Effects Research Foundation in Hiroshima, Japan. Read a summary of Dr. Trosko’s research biography on the MSU website.
