David Marine (20 September 1888 – 6 November 1976) was an American pathologist. He is remembered for his trial, with O. P. Kimball as his assistant, of the effect of giving iodide to a large group of schoolgirls in Ohio from 1917 to 1922, which greatly reduced their development of goiter, and resulted in the iodization of table salt.
