Michael graduated as a medical doctor and biochemist from the University of Cape Town (1988) and from the University of Oxford (Rhodes Scholar) with a doctorate in physiological sciences (Immunology). He subsequently was appointed as a Junior Research Fellow in Medicine at Trinity College, Oxford (1992-95).
