hmmm... Perhaps you could either give just a general history of HeLa cells, or discuss how they're different from regular human cells grown in a lab? Or focus more on the human aspect of the whole thing and discuss Henrietta's life?
Anyway, if you haven't already, you should read a book called "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". It's really good and gives a lot of information about the topic.

I in simple terms finished reading it too!! It change right into a birthday present from my daughter. What and remarkable and heartbreaking tale. It fairly made me contemplate the point of ethics (or lack of) contained in the medical study market...
