Gary Cantor’s research expertise

December 20, 2016
Although he has only been researching as a student for a few years, Gary Cantor has gained some expertise already in his chosen career. This fourth year PhD candidate at Durham’s UNC Chapel Hill, studying in the Genetics and Molecular Biology department, aspires toward a long career in research on the human genome and DNA, striving to discover repairs. Thus far, he has amassed skills in cancer biology research, tissue culture, flow cytometry, gel electrophoresis, DNA, cell proliferation, cell line culture, cell line maintenance, RNA isolation and much more. From stem cells to cancer research and gene regulation, his interests are vast as he continues research work at this prestigious North Carolina university.

Profile, Gary Cantor

In what is still a relatively short life, Gary Cantor has achieved a lot. He studied biology at the University of Florida and became a medical researcher very early; he worked in his first lab while still a teenager. He worked as an intern for Genentech in San Francisco in their Translational Oncology department for four months while still attending Florida. There, he worked on a very important treatment for breast cancer.

After he completed his studies at Florida, Gary Cantor was accepted into the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP) at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he also joined that school’s Genetics and Molecular Biology Department. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the school. The most amazing aspect of all of this is that he is still only 26, and his medical research career is seemingly just under way; he certainly holds the promise that he could help move medical science forward for many decades to come. Of course, if his research is successful, that may be true for centuries to come.
