Henkel spent two decades at the University of Connecticut’s School of Pharmacy before USJ came calling. He has specialized in drug design research into the synthesis of compounds, including National Institutes of Health-funded research into anti-cancer drugs and chemical toxicology. He completed Leadership Greater Hartford’s Quest program and has also forged a connection with Hartford’s South Park Inn – working with homeless who often do not receive services as basic as blood pressure checks.
