PhD in Pharmocology and Physiology
Assistant Professor, Neuroscience and Physiology
Dr. Reichard published various basic science approaches including neuronal tract tracing, intracranial neuropharmacology and behavioral paradigms in rat towards understanding the forebrain neurocircuitry of motivated behaviors that underly maladaptive neuropathologies such as substance and behavioral addictions.
He continued his research interests as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Neurobiology of Addiction Research Center in the Department of Neuroscience at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Reichard employed pathway-specific expression of chemogenetics to manipulate cortical-thalamic neurocircuitry in rodent models of PTSD, anxiety as well as heroin/cocaine self-administration. Throughout his time as a PhD student and post-doctoral fellow, Dr. Reichard taught various courses at the undergraduate, graduate and medical school levels. He continued his development as an educator at Briar Cliff University where he immersed himself in professional development towards implementing high-impact pedagogical practices in teaching.
He continues his passion towards teaching Neuroscience as a faculty at Saba University School of Medicine.
