Catarina Veiga

Dr Catarina Veiga is an Associate Professor and lead of the Paediatric Radiotherapy and Imaging (PRIma) group at University College London. Catarina’s research intersects physics, engineering, and radiation oncology, focusing on medical imaging analysis and disruptive technologies to verify radiotherapy delivery and understand how radiation-induced side effects develop. Her research goal is to ultimately reduce long-term side effects from having radiotherapy during childhood. Catarina holds a BSc in Physics from the University of Minho and an MSc in Medical Physics from the University of Porto. Catarina was awarded her PhD in Medical Physics at University College London where she worked on computational methods to verify accurate radiotherapy delivery. Post-PhD, she has worked on projects related to radiation-induced lung damage before establishing the PRIma group with a focus on paediatric cancers.

In this mini-series of three articles, we share a recent PPIE project where we co-created an accessible information sheet based on a journal paper. In this article the PPI co-ordinator, Lisa Whittaker and one of the researchers, Catarina Veiga give an overview of the project and share their experiences of being involved.
