Before joining the faculty at his alma mater, Dr. Henderson conducted research at Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM), Kansas State University and taught biology at two other small Christian liberal arts institutions. He responded to God’s call into Christian higher education while a postdoctoral fellow at WUSM and is very excited that God’s plans have lead him back to Judson.
