Dr. Bonny Jasani was trained at King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai for his DM degree in Neonatology. He has completed his subspecialty fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine as well as neonatal hemodynamics at University of Toronto.
Jasani’s main research focus is in treatment of patent ductus arteriosus and evidence based synthesis. Currently, he is exploring the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of acetaminophen in treatment of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm infants. Other areas of interest include non-invasive ventilation strategies in preterm infants.
