Katy Vincent is the Senior Pain Fellow in the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Oxford and a Locum Consultant Gynaecologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. She studied medicine at King’s College, London and also obtained an intercalated BSc in Biomedical Sciences and Anatomy. Katy completed her specialist clinical training in the Oxford Deanery during which time she also undertook a DPhil with Professor Irene Tracey’s Pain Imaging Neuroscience group investigating hormonal influences on the pain experience. She was subsequently awarded an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturers post to continue her research and clinical training in parallel. She obtained her CCT in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2015. Her clinical interests are Chronic Pelvic Pain, particularly in teenagers/younger women, and adolescent gynaecology in general. Katy’s research focuses on the role that the central nervous system plays in generating and maintaining pain in women. She is particularly interested in the central mechanisms of gynaecological pain conditions, including dysmenorrhoea and endometriosis, and the interaction between steroid hormones and pain.
