We will be accepting DPhil student applications to start in October 2021 soon.
Professor of Experimental Radiotherapeutics
- Group Leader, Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology
- Honorary Consultant in Clinical Oncology, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust
Our research focus is on understanding and exploiting the biological effects of external beam ionizing radiation and therapeutic radionuclides in solid tumours (breast, lung, pancreas, oesophageal and colorectal cancers among others).
Katherine undertook specialist training in Clinical Oncology at the Hammersmith Hospital and doctoral research at Edinburgh University. In 1995 she was appointed as Staff Radiation Oncologist at the Princess Margaret Hospital and Scientist at the Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto. She returned to the UK in 2006 to join the Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology and established the Experimental Radiotherapeutics Group.
