He started young, to be sure. Gary Cantor studied biology at the University of Florida and he worked as a researcher in his first lab while he was still a teenager. For four months one summer, Gary went to San Francisco to work as an intern for Genentech in their Translational Oncology department. He served on a research team that was looking into a promising breast cancer treatment.
After finishing his undergrad education at Florida, Cantor was accepted into the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he then joined the university's Genetics and Molecular Biology Department. Gary Cantor is currently working on his Ph.D. and, while it sometimes looks as if he has had a lifetime of experience as a medical research, having worked wiin the field for many years, keep in mind that he is only 26, which means his career in medical research is just getting started. In short, Gary hopes that he will continue to help move medical science forward for many years to come. His primary dream is to give hope to the hopeless and he is determined to make that happen as much as possible.
