Maricar Malinis, MD, is an infectious disease specialist who focuses on patients with end-stage organ disease before and after transplantation. She evaluates transplant candidates and educates them about preventive strategies to reduce the risk of infections after transplant. She tells new patients: “I am here to listen, help, and guide you to make the best possible decision that is compatible with your goals of care and quality of life.”

An associate professor of medicine (infectious diseases) with a secondary appointment in surgery (transplant) at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Malinis is also a researcher focusing on clinical outcomes of special transplant populations, including older adults and people living with HIV. Also, she treats complicated infections in immunocompromised hosts, including solid organ and stem cell transplant recipients. 

Dr. Malinis is most excited about her involvement in a clinical trial study of organ transplantation in which both donors and recipients have HIV. In collaboration with Johns Hopkins University and the New England Organ Bank, she assisted with the donation process for the first HIV to HIV-positive liver and kidney transplants. “This study can potentially expand the donor pool and decrease waitlist times for HIV-positive candidates,” she says.
