Born and raised in South Euclid, Ohio, Dr. Lander earned his Doctor of Pharmacy degree in April, 2013 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Prior to this, he had spent three years after completion of his Bachelor of Arts in German literature and microbiology as a science writer in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and a retail pharmacy technician in Cleveland, Ohio, and Daly City, California.
