Dr Justin S. Bice

Associate Professor - Programme Director MSc Medical Research (Intercalated) and Lead for Intercalation


I completed my undergraduate degree at The Royal Veterinary College, University of London having spent 6 months of my final year in the department of pharmacology at Kings College London. I was awarded a Welsh School of Pharmacy PhD studentship and completed my doctoral studies in what is now The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cardiff University (2012). My research focused on targeting the deleterious effects of reperfusion following acute myocardial infarction, manipulating the NO-sGC-cGMP signalling cassette with novel therapeutics. During my doctoral training I spent time at Bayer Pharma AG, Wuppertal, Germany. I stayed in Cardiff, completing a British Heart Foundation post-doctoral research fellowship and subsequent university research and teaching post. I was appointed to a lectureship here at Leicester Medical School in August 2018 and was promoted to Associate Professor in January 2022.
