Dr. Caskey’s 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, 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 an attending physician in infectious diseases at Weill Cornell Medicine Center and an elected member of the American Society of Clinical Investigation.
At the completion of this educational session, participants will:
1. Know about new anti-HIV broadly neutralizing antibodies in clinical development.
2. Understand results from two prevention efficacy studies (AMP trials) with VRC01, an HIV bNAb.
3. Be aware of recent clinical trials of engineered HIV bNAbs.
4. Know about new delivery systems of HIV bNAbs that are entering clinical evaluation.
