Adolph Christian Heinrich Henke (13 April 1775 in Braunschweig – 8 August 1843) was a German physician and pharmacologist known for his work in medical forensics. He was father-in-law to anatomist Rudolf Wagner (1805-1864).
Following studies at the Collegium Carolinum in Braunschweig, he continued his education at the University of Helmstedt, where one of his instructors was chemist Lorenz von Crell (1744-1816). Afterwards, he studied medicine with surgeon August Gottlieb Richter (1742-1812) and obstetrician Friedrich Benjamin Osiander (1759-1822) at the University of Göttingen, subsequently receiving his doctorate in 1799 at Helmstedt.
