Biography

Catherine Doody is a senior lecturer in the School of Public Health Physiotherapy and Population Science.  She qualified in Physiotherapy in UCD and completed a PhD in UCD in 2003.   She established the MSc Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2006 which is a specialist Musculoskeletal programme with international accreditation from the International Association of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists and is director of the programme.  She is a module co-ordinator for a number of MSK modules on the BSc Physiotherapy programme and contribute to the MSc Physiotherapy Pre-registration, MSc Sports Physiotherapy and MSc Advanced Physiotherapy studies.  I have supervised  2 PhD students and 3 MSc students to date, and have co-supervised a further three PhD and 2 MSc students.  

Her research is focussed on the identification and classification of Musculoskeletal related pain states according to underlying neurophysiological pain mechanisms. and personal costs to sufferers. Thus, this is an important area of patient-oriented research with major implications for clinical practice, as there are currently no gold standards for the assessment and classification of any type of pain
My basic and translational research activities have led to the development of novel, and clinically applicable methods of identifying and classifying chronic MSK pain.  Current research is focussed on further dissection of the neurophysiological and clinical dimension of  The work has been extensively disseminated in international journals, and will underpin future research activities in the Physiotherapy research group, UCD
