Biography - Shervin Takyar, MD, PhD

Seyedtaghi “Shervin” Takyar, MD, PhD, is a Yale Medicine pulmonologist who treats a wide variety of respiratory illnesses.

“I like my job because it involves the whole gamut of medicine,” says Dr. Takyar, “from the simple dry cough of a sinus infection to the most complex types of shock in the intensive care unit that demand the highest level of decision making and sophisticated technology.”

Dr. Taykar’s outpatient clinical focus is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is the third leading cause of death worldwide and can also lead to lung cancer.

“Because I treat a wide range of diseases, I see how paying attention to simple issues, such as a cough, or indoor pollution, can prevent significant complications down the road,” says Dr. Taykar.

An associate professor of medicine and molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale University, Dr. Takyar, was awarded the American Association of Physicians Junior Investigator Award. He has spoken across the country and internationally about his research on ribonucleic acid (RNAs), inflammation, lung injury, and lung cancer.
