Dr Morgan Wallace is an experienced research scientist and cellular immunologist whose research investigates the role of the immune system in fighting cancer. This interest stems from observing the parallels between immunity to viruses and immune responses to cancer. Dr Wallace is currently an Honorary Research Fellow at the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute (FECRI), where she is a member of several supervisory panels.
Morgan’s current research projects, in collaboration with researchers at FECRI, seek to better understand how changes in immune regulation contribute to haematological cancers including Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia and Multiple Myeloma. Her research has been published in high impact scientific journals and presented at national and international conferences and seminars.
Morgan was awarded a prestigious international fellowship to conduct postdoctoral research at The University of Massachusetts (USA) and has held postdoctoral research appointments at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and St Vincent’s Research Institute in Melbourne.
