Congratulations to Kaylee for winning the Vice President for Research’s 3 Minute Challenge and becoming part of the next cohort fo VPR Graduate Fellows. Click the link below to see her winning presentation:
Dr. Henry has been named Professor Laureate of the College of Natural Sciences. Congratulations! The designation of Professor Laureate is the highest professorial title awarded by the College. It is intended not only to honor the individual, but also to provide role models to the College, and to publicly acknowledge the contributions of some of our most accomplished faculty to the entire campus.
Our recent review paper, Electrochemical paper-based devices: sensing approaches and progress toward practical applications, was featured on the cover of Lab on a Chip. Congratulations Eka, Cynthia, Kaylee, and Ilhoon!
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!
Our two second-years, Kate and Jeremy, have both passed their literature-seminar presentations! Congratulations! Next stop – prelims!
The Henry Group presented a variety of projects at the Graduate Student Showcase the other day and took home some prizes as well!
Kaylee Clark – CSU Ventures Drivers of Innovation Platinum Award
“Enzymatic Sensors From Carbon Composite Electrodes”
Kate McMahon – College of Natural Sciences Outstanding Scholar Award
“Heavy Metal Sensor Array for Analysis of Heavy Metals in Cosmetics”
Sid Jain – Warner Scott College of Engineering Excellence in Research Top Scholar Award
Ruth Menger – “Inexpensive paper-based sensor for on-site heavy metal detection in water”
Zach Call – “Pump-Free Magnetophoretic Cell Separation for UTI Detection”
Kate and Ruth were recently accepted into the CSU Ventures Ambassador Program. They will spend the next year learning about the technology transfer process and how to get ideas, products, and technologies from the lab into real life.

Congratulations to Kaylee, Ruth, Melissa, and Zach, who are now all officially Ph.D.candidates! They all passed their preliminary exams this summer and are very glad to have that over with.
As summer comes to an end, we said goodbye to Dr. Kate Berg, who defended earlier this summer, and Dylan Cavey, who was with us for 10 weeks with the chemistry REU program. Kate will be staying in Fort Collins, working for Legacy Biodesign LLC while Dylan will return to Adams State University to finish up his senior year of undergrad. We are sad to see them go and wish them best of luck for the future!
Back in June, Chuck, Eka, Zach, and Ruth attended the 2019 Gordon Research Seminar and Conference in Hong Kong: Physics and Chemistry of Microfluidics. It was a great week learning about the newest research in microfluidics, making connections, and having fun.
