    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Wallace’s research focuses on understanding the factors that contribute to the racial disparities in colorectal cancer carcinogenesis through examining differences in population-level tumor pathologies. She is currently investigating the relationship between race and the decision to undergo treatment of stage IV colorectal adenocarcinoma using hospital-based clinical data.
