Dr. Edward Wallace

Sir Henry Dale Fellow


Dr. Wallace is a Sir Henry Dale Fellow, and Group Leader, in the Institute of Cell Biology at Edinburgh.

Before that, Dr. Wallace held a Marie Curie fellowship, also at the University of Edinburgh, working with Guido Sanguinetti in Informatics and Jean Beggs in the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology. 

Dr. Wallace did his postdoctoral work with D. Allan Drummond, initially at Harvard University's FAS Center for Systems Biology  in 2010. He moved with the lab to the University of Chicago in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and added experimental capabilities to his computational training. There, he surveyed the heat-triggered movement of proteins into RNA-protein granules, and showed that these proteins are released without detectable degradation as cells recover from stress.

Dr. Wallace received his Ph.D. in Mathematics, also at the University of Chicago, working with Jack Cowan on stochastic dynamics of biological networks.
