Particles carrying heavy flavor are important probes of the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) since they are produced in hard scattering during the earliest stages of nuclear collisions. In recent years, the PHENIX detector has collected data on p+p, p+Al, p+Au, He$^3$+Au, Cu+Au and Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=200GeV with the addition of silicon vertex detectors (VTX and FVTX). Analyses using the VTX for central rapidity (|y|<0.3) studies, and the FVTX for forward rapidities (1.2<|y|<2.2) have produced results on charm and bottom open heavy flavor production, as well as $\psi$’ to J/$\psi$ ratios. In this talk we will present recent results from PHENIX on open heavy flavor and charmonia in a variety of systems to extract information on cold nuclear matter and QGP properties at RHIC.
