Originally qualifying in pharmacy at the University of Nottingham (B.Pharm.) and The Royal London Hospital (M.R.Pharm.S.), Gary Baxter undertook research training in experimental pharmacology (M.Sc., Ph.D.). His Ph.D. was awarded for studies on modulation of ischaemia- and reperfusion-induced arrhythmias in hypertrophied myocardium.
At the end of 2008, he was awarded the higher doctorate (DSc) from his alma mater.
