Alex Miras graduated from medical school at Imperial College London, UK, and trained as a junior doctor and Specialist Registrar in Diabetes and Endocrinology in the London deanery rotations between 2002-2010. In 2010, he was awarded with a Medical Research Council (MRC) Clinical Research Training PhD fellowship, which enabled him to investigate the effects of bariatric surgery on food reward using functional neuroimaging and behavioural methodologies both in humans and rodents.
