Nicholas Wade (born 17 May 1942) is a British-born US journalist and author of numerous books who has served as staff writer and editor for Nature, Science, and the science section of The New York Times.
Wade's 2014 book "A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History" was widely denounced by the scientific community for misrepresenting research into human population genetics.
In May 2021, Nicholas Wade published an article which advanced the claim that COVID-19 originated from a leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This claim is at odds with the current scientific consensus that the virus most likely has a zoonotic origin.
