Bonnie Ann Wallace
Bonnie Ann Wallace is Professor of Molecular Biophysics in the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology at Birkbeck College, University of London. She obtained her PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University and did postdoctoral work (as a Jane Coffin Childs fellow) at Harvard and at the MRC Lab of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. She was an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Columbia University, before moving to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Center for Biophysics. She moved her lab permanently to London following a sabbatical visit (as a Fogarty Fellow) to Birkbeck. She was the first recipient of the Dayhoff Award of the U.S. Biophysical Society (for the best young female biophysicist in America), and received the Irma T. Hirschl Award, and the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, and was previously named one of the dozen top young scientists in America by Fortune Magazine. She received the 2010 AstraZeneca Award from the Biochemical Society and the 2009 Interdisciplinary Prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Her principal interests are in the structure and function of voltage-gated sodium channels, with another focus being the development of new methods and bioinformatics tools for characterising proteins by circular dichroism and synchrotron radiation circular dichroism techniques. Professor Wallace is the author/editor of the book “Modern Techniques in Circular Dichroism and Synchrotron Radiation Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy”.
