After a career as Consultant Nephrologist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, England I returned to Ghana in 2009 to take up an appointment as Honorary Consultant Nephrologist at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Ghana Medical School.
I have a long standing research interest in the immunogenetics and treatment of lupus nephritis and ANCA associated vasculitis. My current research interests have been the prevalence, causes and genetics of chronic kidney disease in Africa. I am Co-PI together with Professor A. Ojo and Professor B.L. Salako of the H3Africa Kidney Disease Research Network grant funded by the NIH to study the genomics of CKD in Africa. I am a past President of the African Association of Nephrology.
