Presenter Bio
Marina Caskey, MD

Marina Caskey, MD is a Professor of Clinical Investigation at The Rockefeller University. Her work focuses on the development and clinical evaluation of novel immunotherapeutic strategies against infectious diseases, with a special emphasis on HIV. Caskey has led a series of early-phase clinical studies to evaluate the safety and efficacy of broadly neutralizing anti-HIV antibodies. These studies have revitalized this area of HIV research, which had been abandoned after first-generation antibodies failed to show significant effects in humans. Broadly neutralizing antibodies are now considered one of the most promising strategies to achieve HIV remission, as well as potential alternatives to antiretrovirals for both therapy and prevention.

Dr. Caskey graduated from medical school at the Federal University of Sergipe in Brazil. She then completed an internal medicine residency at Saint Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, in New York, followed by fellowship training in infectious diseases at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Caskey is also an attending physician in infectious diseases at Weill Cornell Medicine Center and an elected member of the American Society of Clinical Investigation.
