Remembering Professor Paul Wallace and his passionate support for research

9 April 2024

The team at Noclor and many of our colleagues in the research world and beyond have been saddened by the passing of Paul Wallace.

In February, Paul died peacefully at his home in Italy after a long period of illness due to prostate cancer. He was a GP at Hampstead Group Practice in Camden for 20 years until his retirement in 2012, tirelessly supporting research in the practice. He also previously worked as the National Primary Care Director for the NIHR Clinical Research Networks.

Paul was the David Cohen Professor of Primary Health Care at UCL (1993-2012) and Head of Department of Primary Care & Population Sciences (1994-2001).

Lynis Lewis, Service Director for Noclor NHS Research Office, said:

“Paul played a pivotal role in establishing Noclor during the late nineties, contributing significantly to its development into one of the UK's pioneering primary care research networks. He served as our research director for many years, during which Noclor thrived under his guidance and leadership. On a personal level, Paul was an incredible ally and mentor, nurturing my growth as a research leader. His absence will be deeply felt, and his legacy will endure as a testament to his remarkable impact.”
