Juliane Wallace, Associate Professor and Director

Exercise Science, Human Sciences

Dr. Wallace is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science and the Chair of the Department of Kinesiology. Her primary focus of training and study is in the area of cardiovascular exercise physiology. She serves as Director of the Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology Laboratory, and the Coordinator for the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology.

Dr. Wallace’s primary teaching responsibilities include KIN 420: Advanced Exercise Physiology, KIN 428: Physical Dimensions of Aging, and KIN 500: Research Methods in Physical Activity.

Dr. Wallace’s research interests are in the area of cardiovascular physiology, and more specifically the relationship between aging, fitness level and mechanisms of blood pressure regulation. In studying these areas, the interaction between fitness level, aging, and antihypertensive medications can aid in the treatment of hypertension. Hypertension is a leading cause of heart disease in this country.

Dr. Wallace is a Past President of the Midwest American College of Sports Medicine (MWACSM). She has served on Board of Directors for MWACSM. Dr. Wallace has been a member of the national American College of Sports Medicine since 2001 and achieved Fellowship status in 2007. Dr. Wallace served as the Interim Associate Dean and Director of the SIU Graduate School from January 2018-June 2019.
