September 22, 2017
The fact is, Gary Cantor, Durham researcher has always known he wanted a life in the medical profession. That dream came to him when he was growing up as a young boy in Coral Springs, Florida. That was when he became fascinated by a medical reality TV show called “Trauma: Life in the ER.” Watching that, he decided he wanted to become a surgeon someday. And why not? They were very cool and suave and they were the coolest doctors in the emergency room.

That said, while Gary continued to desire a career in medicine, his dream of being a surgeon took a slight detour when he was 13. That was when he was cruising around YouTube and ran across a video by Dr. Aubrey de Grey, who is a prominent biomedical gerontologist who wants everyone to know that medical research can help people live for as much as 1,000 years. His fascination with that little tidbit led him to become a medical researcher. Of course, not being one to do anything halfway, Gary Cantor, Durham resident, is now one of the best medical researchers in the country.
