Chuck Henry

Henry researches miniaturization in analytical chemistry, and has developed cutting-edge lab-on-a-chip technologies, including ultra-cheap clinical and environmental diagnostic tools made from ordinary filter paper.

Current research projects include the development of paper- and polymer-based microfluidic systems, for the colorimetric and electrochemical quantification of biologically and environmentally relevant bacteria, neurotransmitters, heavy metals, etc. Major techniques used include microfabrication, chromatography, electrochemistry, electrophoresis, microscopy, and 3D printing.

Henry is a full member of the CSU School of Biomedical Engineering and was named Professor Laurate of the CSU College of Natural Sciences in 2020.

Henry received his B.S. in chemistry from Missouri Southern State College in 1994. He earned his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Arkansas in 1998.
