He has received funding from the Casa Colina Foundation that has supported investigations on the effectiveness of serotonin reuptake inhibitors in autistic children. He has also participated in multicenter clinical trials investigating the effects of aripiprazole on irritability in these patients.  During his child fellowship, Dr. Henry was granted a Livingston Award through HMS to examine self-awareness and neurocognitive measures in schizophrenic patients being treated with olanzapine.  Research funding has resulted in multiple first-author publications and abstract presentations.
