Biography

Melissa P. Knauert, MD, PhD, treats critically ill patients in the medical intensive care unit at Yale New Haven Hospital and is the program director of the Yale School of Medicine Critical Care Medicine Fellowship.

She is fascinated by critical illness and “how systemic intervention with each affected organ improves the overall health of a patient.” 

An associate professor of medicine (pulmonary) at Yale School of Medicine, she also conducts research on sleep deprivation and circadian disruption in critically ill patients. “I would like to design interventions to improve patient outcomes in the intensive care unit via improvements in sleep and circadian alignment,” says Dr. Knauert.
