The Henry Lab has had a few teams working on COVID-related research for the past few months. One of the devices has been successful and was licensed to Quara Devices, a startup company specializing in diagnostic biosensors.
See below for links to a few news articles and interviews:
Alec Richardson, one of our engineering students, recently defended his Master’s thesis “Design and Evaluation of an Instrumented Microfluidic Organotypic Device and Sensor Module for Organ-on-a-chip Applications.” We will miss him in the lab and wish him luck for the future!
Congrats to Dr. Eka Noviana who defended her thesis “Development of Paper-Based Devices for Point-of-Need Bioanalytical Applications” over Zoom a few weeks ago. She has returned to Indonesia with a faculty position at Universitas Gadjah Mada. We will miss her greatly!

While the lab has been remote for the past few weeks, we are still keeping up our group meetings – virtually. Unfortunately that also means we can’t go out to lunch together for the time being. One of our post docs, Tugba, has to return to Turkey so we had a virtual lunch today to say goodbye. We will miss you!

The Henry Lab would like to extend a warm welcome to Brandaise, our new first-year graduate student. Her undergraduate degrees from UC Colorado Springs are in Chemistry and Biology, and while in our lab, she will be working on the use and optimization of organ-on-a-chip models to analyze human physiochemical systems. Welcome!
