Above is a picture of two human cancer cells sitting next to each other right before they're about to divide into four cells. They're derived from the now famous "HeLa" line of cancer cells, which were taken from Henrietta Lacks in 1951 and used for medical research without her permission. "Understanding how cells divide is critical to understanding how cancerous cells multiply and take over," according to Dr. Andrews.
