Sallieu is an alum of the acclaimed African Leadership Academy (ALA) and a graduate of Bennington College. He earned his Bachelor's degree in Pre-Medicine with a focus in Biology and Chemistry. At ALA Sallieu was co-founder and CEO of a project tackling the scourge of HIV/AIDS through sports, the African Football Academy. He also published a literature-based research on 'Mars Exploration' in the ALA Annual Scientific Research Journal. He has interned at the Kwazulu Natal Research Institute for TB and HIV in Durban, South Africa, where he worked on a mutagenesis project seeking to differentiate essential and nonessential genes in mycobacterium tuberculosis. He has also worked at a community health research center in Ghana, supporting malaria and diarrhea intervention programs. Sallieu also has experience in malaria research from his previous internship with the National Institutes of Health, the primary agency of the US government that is responsible for biomedical research. At the NIH, he interned at the Wellems lab, where he investigated genetic mechanisms of artemisinin resistance in Plasmodium falciparum. He recently completed two population-based public health fellowships, one with the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and the other with a Harvard School of Public Health Professor in his home country, Sierra Leone. In both fellowships, Sallieu carried out projects on resilience and coping mechanisms among vulnerable populations and contributed to a report for publication. At Bennington, Sallieu worked in the Cell and Molecular biology lab under prof. Amie McClellan. His research focused on investigating a novel co-chaperone of Hsp90, using CFTR as a putative substrate for protein quality control. Sallieu has been working as a Research Associate at Daktari Diagnostics, Inc., a biomedical start-up based in Cambridge, MA. For the last 18 months, Sallieu has been an integral part of the R&D team, working to develop low-cost point-of-care diagnostic devices.
