Alicia Solorzano completed her graduation in 2001 at the Instituto de Microbiología Bioquimica IMB at Salamanca University, Spain. Present I am a Research Assistant Professor at Department of Veterinary Medicine at University of Maryland. She is one of the members in ASV, ISIRV, CRWAD.
My current interest is the development of live-attenuated influenza vaccines against influenza. I have constructed live-attenuated vaccine strains for swine influenza and I am evaluating their potential in efficacy and protection. In addition I am also trying to understand the molecular mechanisms that make these viruses attenuated.
