THE PRESENTATION WILL FOCUS upon the importance of mentorship in developing a successful career in academia or industry. The mentorship relationships that Dr. Card has enjoyed throughout his career have proven to be essential to establishing a successful and rewarding research program in brain structure and function. Dr. Card will highlight how these relationships have evolved and guided his development as a scientist at various stages of his career, using the evolution of his research program as an example. Particular emphasis will be placed upon the importance of mentorship in acquiring the multidisciplinary expertise that is essential for success in research and teaching.

Dr. Card graduated from Ashland University (then Ashland College) with a degree in Biology in 1972. He received his M.S. in Biological Sciences from Wright State University in 1975, and his Ph.D. in Neuroanatomy from Wayne State University Wayne State University, at Detroit, Mich.; state supported; coeducational; established 1956 as a successor to Wayne Univ.

The focus of Dr. Card's research is the functional organization of the hypothalamus hypothalamus (hī'pəthăl`əməs), an important supervisory center in the brain, rich in ganglia, nerve fibers, and synaptic connections. It is composed of several sections called nuclei, each of which controls a specific function.  and central autonomic networks.
