Maria Dudareva

NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow

I am a NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow and specialist registrar in Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, interested in improving treatment pathways for patients with bone and joint infection. My current work focuses on predicting infection recurrence after surgery, for adults with osteomyelitis, fracture-related infection, and prosthetic joint infection. I am investigating the ways pre-operative care could be improved to reduce infection recurrence, without using more antibiotics.

I am a co-investigator for the SOLARIO randomised controlled trial of systemic antibiotic duration for patients treated with surgery and local antibiotic therapy (implanted antibiotics) for bone and joint infections. This study aims to see if it may be possible to shorten the long antibiotic courses often used to treat bone and joint infections.
