Michael Wallace was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, USA, as a third-generation physician. After attending Oberlin College, in Ohio, where he studied Biology and Art History, he returned to Duke University School of Medicine in Durham.

Dr Wallace became interested in research after attending a one-year research externship with Don Ganem and Harold Varmus at UC San Francisco, studying Hepatitis B replication. He was persuaded by Don Ganem to go to the Brigham and Women's Hospital, in Boston, Massachusetts, where he completed a medical residency and GI fellowship. There he developed his current interest in clinical research in GI-Endoscopy.

Dr Wallace completed a Master's in Public Health at Harvard University, Massachusetts, studying biostatistics, epidemiology, and clinical trial design. He then returned to the southern United States, to learn advanced endoscopy skills with Robert Hawes and Peter Cotton, at MUSC. In 1999 he decided to stay on the faculty, where he continues to love the clinical research environment of MUSC, and Charleston, South Carolina.
