Kate Boddy is an associate research fellow for the Patient and Public Involvement Team within PenCLAHRC. Her work entails involving people in research so that the people who are meant to benefit from research have a say in shaping it.

She has a background in health service research and has previously worked as an information specialist on numerous systematic reviews.

She has a particular interest in a number of research areas including teaching evidence based medicine skills to non-clinical audiences, methods of engaging service users in research prioritisation and involving the public in systematic reviews.
