Adrianna Szostek

Adrianna Stozek is a Pre-Veterinary & Animal Biosciences major from the University of Delaware who worked with Dr. Eric Benson to test the efficacy of several foam-applied disinfectants to inactivate infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) in the presence of an organic load. The goal of her research was to find the most effective disinfectant for metal surfaces in transportation vehicles used during outbreaks.

Adrianna wants to enter a graduate program in virology or pathogen biology, and this research grants her an opportunity to work more closely with viruses and disinfectants, as well as show original thought in an organized experiment.
