HeLa Around the World
Research with HeLa cells have been used to shed light on some of the most fundamental questions about human health and disease. HeLa cells have also played an important catalyst role in furthering experiments that bridge multiple disciplines. The chart below visualizes the number of publications in which HeLa cells were used in combination with other techniques and technologies to further knowledge between certain scientific areas of research. For example, if you move your cursor across the area contained under “Cell Migration”, you will see that there have been 366 publications that involve HeLa cells, bacteriology and cell migration. In continuing to move across, you find that there have been 311 publications involving HeLa cells, mitosis, and cell migration. This chart helps visualize how ubiquitous the use of HeLa cells has become over the past six decades.
