Caption: HeLa cells being incubated. Containers of cultured HeLa cells are seen on shelves in an incubation cabinet. The cells are grown in the incubator in different concentrations in a culture medium. HeLa cells were the first human cell line, established in 1952, to research cancer. They were obtained in 1951 from the cervix of Henrietta Lacks (after whom the cells are named) from Baltimore, USA. She died of cervical cancer eight months later. HeLa cells thrive exceptionally well in the laboratory and are used in viral, genetic and anti-cancer research worldwide. Photographed at the Institute of Virology in Oxford, England.
