    First and foremost, I suggest you read the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

    HeLa cells have been used in making vaccines and cures, like for polio (vaccine), AIDS (in process, I think), and cancer.

    They've also been used in gene mapping, and effects of toxic substances and radiation.

    Hope that helped!
