Research and recreation for Gary Cantor

Gary Cantor
Most days for Durham’s Gary Cantor surround research, research and research into the human genome and how it affects the aging process. This is his life’s aspiration and what he regularly studies as a fourth year PhD candidate at nearby UNC Chapel Hill and its genetics and molecular biology department. But aside from the classroom, in his bit of spare time, Cantor returns to some of the recreational activities he enjoyed in his youth, such as chess, which he played competitively in junior high school. Gary Cantor also was incredibly active in sports when younger and occasionally is as an adult as well. He previously took Krav Maga lessons, practiced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, ran track and field, and played football, golf and soccer, which he still enjoys today as free time allows beyond the research lab.
