Snigdha Jain is an Assistant Professor in the Section of Pulmonary, Critical care and Sleep Medicine at Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Jain completed her medical school at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa before starting her fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She joined Yale as a post-doctoral fellow in the NIA-funded T32 Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging-Related Research program to pursue her research interest of improving health outcomes of critically ill older adults.

Her research interests include improving patient-centered outcomes of older adults with serious illnesses including critical illness and advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with an emphasis on health equity. Her research investigating differences in healthcare delivery as a potential mechanism for disparities in outcomes of older adults hospitalized with critical illness, and distressing symptoms among them, has been funded by the NIA Grant for Early Medical and Surgical Specialists Transitioning to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) Award, the Parker B.
