Professor Yeboah is the PI of the Ghana Korle-Bu site. He is the former chairman of the Department of Urology and an Emeritus Professor of Urology at Korle Bu Hospital and University of Ghana School of Medicine and Dentistry.  He was also the PI of the prostate cancer cohort study with Dr. Hsing and NCI for over the last 10 years. Professor Yeboah will be responsible for collaborating with Dr. Mensah on the Korle Bu Hospital component of the proposed study; obtaining IRB and other regulatory approvals; and conducting monthly meetings with US and Korle Bu Hospital study collaborators.

Professor Yeboah has set up a state-of-the-art urologic clinic for the Korle-Bu Hospital as part of the US National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored Ghana Prostate Cancer Study in collaboration with Dr. Ann Hsing while Dr. Hsing was at the NCI (Dr. Hsing is currently at the Stanford University School of Medicine), which includes ultrasound machines and biopsy guns for ultrasound-guided biopsies. Professor Yeboah also helps train junior urologists in using these technologies.
