Since he arrived at McWhorter School of Pharmacy in 1986, Roger Lander has worked hard to make a difference.

"I worked within the schools Pharmacokinetics Center for three years, but then went back into pharmacy practice." Lander has helped to expand the international involvement at the pharmacy school, including student rotations in the United Kingdom, Indonesia and Vietnam as well as offering studying/training opportunities at Samford University for foreign pharmacists. During his free time, he enjoys woodworking.
