"The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks": The Story Continues

McCann Center
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer undergoing cancer treatment whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital to the development of modern vaccines, cancer treatments, in vitro fertilization techniques, and more. HeLa cells are the most widely used human cell lines in existence. Mrs. Lacks’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she has been virtually unknown.

The international success of Rebecca Skloot’s New York Times best seller, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, has left people keenly interested in the Lacks family and Mrs. Lacks’s legacy. On Aug. 7, 2013, the National Institutes of Health announced that it had reached an understanding with Mrs. Lacks’s descendants to allow biomedical researchers controlled access to the whole genome data of cells derived from her tumor.

In this appearance, Veronica Spencer, Mrs. Lacks’s great granddaughter, and David Lacks, Jr., her grandson, will share what it meant to find out—decades after the fact—that her cells were being used in laboratories around the world. The family’s presence will put a personal face on issues such as the history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over who controls what our bodies are made of.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was designated as the Common Reading for incoming Marist first-year students in fall 2013. The Common Reading is a cornerstone of the Marist Core, a curriculum required of all students at the College.

"No Stone Unturned": Traumatic Brain Injury and the Conspiracy of Decency

Henry Hudson Room (Fn301)
Bart Goldstein was only sixteen when he suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a car accident in 2001. No Stone Unturned: A Father's Memoir of His Son's Encounter with Traumatic Brain Injury is the saga of Bart’s struggle to regain his life. Told from his father’s point of view, the book chronicles the family’s ordeal, and flashbacks fill in Bart’s life since he arrived from Korea at the age of five months.

Considering every possibility in their search for remedies to Bart’s catastrophic injuries, the Goldsteins explored several promising alternatives, including craniosacral, hyperbaric oxygen, sensory learning, and vision restoration therapies. Bart’s remarkable recovery resulted from a combination of conventional medicine and alternative and emerging therapies.

In this talk, sponsored by the Marist College Department of Education, author Joel Goldstein will speak about the need for cross-disciplinary collaboration in serving people with TBI and their families. Calling on his family’s experiences as well as recent research in the burgeoning field of neurological rehabilitation, Goldstein explains how medical, rehabilitation and educational systems can and must work together. He advocates for community involvement in the rehabilitation process and for openness to unconventional therapies. Goldstein’s talk will help psychologists, social workers, teachers and other school personnel understand how they can become part of the “conspiracy of decency” that supports people with TBI in our communities.

TBI has now become the “signature injury” for thousands of wounded warriors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan; this timely book offers profound insights into what survivors and their families must face. Anyone struggling with this “invisible” disability will find the book insightful, inspiring, and useful.

Goldstein has written about his son Bart’s continuing rehabilitation, and about the family’s role in seeking the best available TBI therapies, for Exceptional Parent Magazine, Brainline.org., Adoption Today, and Military Special Needs Network.

Computational Experiments and the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Dn225 - Smart Lecture
On October 9, the Royal Swedish Academy of Science announced
the award of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt, and Arieh Warshel for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems. The work based on computational methods has far-reaching implications. The committee note that today the computer is just as important a tool for chemists as the test tube.

Marist's own Dr. John Galbraith is conducting research based on a similar theoretical model and his professional life has briefly crossed paths with one of the awardees.

Dr. Galbraith will give a short presentation, in laymans terms, about the basis of the awarded work and future implications, followed by a Q&A session.
