After completing his Paediatric Surgical training in Italy, Dr. Zani moved to the United Kingdom for a 3-year full-time dedicated research post leading to a PhD at University College London to refine his academic training. Following this period, he was offered to advance his clinical training in the UK working in world famous teaching institutions like Great Ormond Street Hospital and King’s College Hospital, London, where he focused on neonatal and pediatric surgery. During those years, he maintained a high academic interest, which also led to his initial appointment as honorary Assistant Professor in Paediatric Surgery at Sapienza University of Rome, promoted in 2014 to Associate Professor in Paediatric Surgery by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research.
Last year, Dr. Zani moved to Toronto to work at The Hospital for Sick Children and continue his previous collaboration on stem cell therapy for necrotizing enterocolitis. He also has a keen interest in Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
CDHi is proud to welcome Dr. Zani to our Medical Advisory Board.
