Maor Sauler has been a member of the Pulmonary & Critical Care faculty since 2014. Dr. Sauler specializes in adult critical care including acute lung injury and sepsis. He also sees patients in the outpatient setting with pulmonary diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Dr. Sauler is board-certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, and critical care medicine.

Dr. Sauler earned his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and received his MD from Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Sauler then completed both an internship and residency in internal medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He went on to complete fellowship training in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Yale-School of Medicine.

Dr. Sauler investigates mechanisms of lung injury and cytoprotection by integrating findings from high-throughput sequencing technologies with murine and in vitro models of chronic lung disease. Specifically, he is focused on identifying cellular stress responses that change with age or with COPD, and understanding how these mechanisms contribute to disease susceptibility or maintain lung "resilience". By studying the impact of aberrant cellular stress responses on lung injury, inflammation, and repair, Dr. Sauler hopes to identify novel therapeutic targets for patients with COPD.
