He is currently co- supervising 5 PhD and 7 Masters students. Dr. Sauli is also currently working as Acting Head of Global Health and Biomedical Sciences’ Department at school of LiSBE. He previously worked as Senior Research Officer at Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC), before joining NM-AIST. Dr. Sauli did his PhD at Southeast University (China) from August 2010 to Jan 2015. He acquired his Master’s Degree in Biomedicine from Linkoping University (Sweden) in 2004. His Bachelor Degree in Medicine was acquired from St. Petersburg State Pavlov Medical University (Russia) in 2002. Sauli’s previous research work was mainly on molecular epidemiology of cancer, focusing on genotyping of SNPs using novel techniques, like pre-designed magnetic nanoparticles, as thermal stable DNA carriers in genotyping PCR reactions. Specific research work was on genotyping of SNPs from breast and gastric cancer patients and comparison of genotypes with treatment outcome/resistance or risk/susceptibility for the cancers. Dr. Sauli has authored and co-authored more than 20 articles in peer reviewed International Journals.
