Sarah attended undergrad at St. Olaf College in Northfield where she majored in chemistry and worked in a lab synthesizing dendrimers for possible use as pharmaceutical delivery molecules. It was there that she first developed an interest in pharmacy. She graduated from St. Olaf and pursued her interest in pharmacy at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. During school, she began working at a compounding pharmacy utilizing her chemistry and pharmacy background to develop formulas for a myriad of pharmaceutical dosage forms and applications. After graduation, she continued to work at the compounding pharmacy for a total of 5 years. She uses this experience to help with her current position as Pharmacy Technical Consultant at Fagron. Her favorite types of compounds to make include tablet triturates and gummies.

Clark Zander received his BS Degrees in Biology and Secondary Education from Concordia College, at Moorhead, Minnesota in 1988. He entered the world of pharmaceutical compounding quickly and has remained a vital participant in the development of innovative compounding components ever since. Clark’s long-term experience working intimately with pharmacists to recognize and repair the concerns of their patients has driven his development of vehicles that benefit those preparing and using compounded medications through development of specialized creams, in particular. He has also worked with multiple manufacturers to inform the development of compounding equipment so that the needs of the compounding pharmacist are met.
Clark’s, expertise has recently been leveraged to support a growing global interest in compounding practices. Through research and intimate knowledge of actual practice challenges, Clark has been instrumental in raising the bar for compounding vehicles to ensure that they are free from objectionable ingredients while maintaining their reliability, ease-of-use and stability. He brings exceptional problem-solving experience to individuals participating in the practical knowledge provided by Fagron Acedemy training programs.
