Salem cofounded Colibri Care in 2020, a developer and manufacturer of IP-based medical devices in the Middle East. He has worked on introducing a line of hemostatic products, which not only help to control bleeding in surgeries and heavy bleeding incidents but also revolutionize other medical practices, such as dental extraction. Colibri Care’s U.S.-patented sponges absorb blood up to 55x their weight in a few seconds. The company’s CurASeal product enables blood clotting in 20 seconds. As an undergraduate, Mousa founded and was the first president of the American Chemical Society student chapter at Alexandria University in Egypt.
