All-Academy Lecture Mentorship, A Key to Success in
 Research, Teaching and Life


Dr. J. Patrick Card (Ashland University class of 1972) is Professor of Neuroscience and Co-Director of the Center for Neuroanatomy with Neurotropic Viruses at the University of Pittsburgh.

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 in 1979. He has been a faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh since 1992, and currently serves as Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and is co-Director of the Center for Neuroanatomy with Neurotropic Viruses. The focus of Dr. Card's research is the functional organization of the hypothalamus and central autonomic networks. This work includes studies to define the synaptic organization and chemical phenotype of the central networks that mediate essential regulatory functions, as well as the development of tools for transneuronal tracing of neural circuits. Dr. Card has authored or co-authored 95 peer-reviewed papers in neuroscience.
