Dan Wallace was raised in the Carthay Circle/Fairfax area of Los Angeles. After attending Fairfax High School, he received his undergraduate and medical education at the University of Southern California, graduating with an MD. His graduate medical training included an internship at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, medical residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and a fellowship in rheumatology at UCLA. He is Board Certified in both Internal Medicine and Rheumatology.
While a fellow at UCLA, he conducted pioneering arthritis research that landed his picture in Time magazine and developed a close relationship with his mentor, Edmund Dubois. Dr Dubois had the largest lupus practice in the United States at the time and was the principal editor of the only lupus textbook. Dr. Wallace entered private practice in 1979 with his father, a cardiologist, but assumed Dr. Dubois’ practice on his passing in 1985. He is the author of 8 medical textbooks (including the last 6 editions of Dubois' Lupus Erythematosus, All About Fibromyalgia, The Lupus Book, All About Osteoarthritis, The New Sjogren's Syndrome Handbook, and Fibromyalgia & Other Central Pain Syndromes), 25 book chapters, and over 340 medical publications. The latter have appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine, the Lancet, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Journal of Immunology, and Journal of the American Medical Association.
Wallace’s academic efforts include having served as Chief of Rheumatology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Century City Hospital, and the City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte, CA. He is currently a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. His clinical practice is based at Cedars-Sinai, where he is involved in the care of 2,000 lupus patients, the largest practice of its kind in the United States and co- directs the Cedars Sinai Rheumatology fellowship program. The Wallace Rheumatic Disease Research Center currently runs over 30 clinical trials for patients with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia. The center has been the recipient of multiple National Institute of Health grants. 20% of his time is spent in teaching and research, providing free medical care.
Dr. Wallace’s volunteer work has entailed serving as Chairman of the Lupus Foundation of America, the Research and Education Foundation of the American College of Rheumatology, and on the Board of Directors of the United Scleroderma Foundation, the Lupus Research Institute and the American Society for Apheresis. He has served on the Medical Advisory Board of the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation and the American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association. His service has been recognized by being named as among the 200 best doctors in the nation by Town and Country Magazine, best doctors in Los Angeles by Los Angeles Magazine, Best Doctors in America editions since 1994. Dr. Wallace is the recipient of the Lupus Foundation of America Humanitarian Award, Achievement award of the Lupus Research Institute, Spirit Award of the Scleroderma Foundation, the Jane Wyman Humanitarian Award of the Arthritis Foundation, and the Healthcare Professional Leadership Award from the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation. His efforts have raised over $20 million for various rheumatic disease organizations.
In addition to his commitments and responsibilities, he is devoted to his wife (and sometimes co-author), Janice Wallace, their 3 children and 2 grandchildren.
