While a fellow at UCLA, he became close to his mentor, Edmund Dubois, a renowned clinician and the principal editor of the only lupus textbook; at Dubois’s death in 1985, Dan assumed his practice caring now for about 2000 lupus patients. Dr. Wallace’s Research Center currently runs over 30 clinical trials for patients with different rheumatic diseases.
Dr. Wallace is the author of eight medical textbooks, including the last six editions of Dubois’ Lupus Erythematosus, 25 book chapters, and 340 scientific publications, some in very prestigious journals (New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet, others).
Dr. Wallace has served as Chairman of the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA), the Research and Education Foundation of the American College of Rheumatology, and on the Board of Directors of the United Scleroderma Foundation (SF) and the Lupus Research Institute (LRI). Dr. Wallace has received the LFA Humanitarian Award, the LRI Achievement award, the SF Spirit Award, the Arthritis Foundation Wyman Humanitarian Award, and the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation Healthcare Professional Leadership Award. His efforts have raised over $20 million for various rheumatic disease organizations.
