Cancer is at the heart of the public health service mission of the Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), with over one-third of all cancer patients in France being treated at AP-HP hospitals. AP-HP treats all cancers, at all stages, covering all ages of the population. This includes rare cancers that affect less than 6 people out of 100,000 people per year, in addition to childhood cancer, rare diseases that account for 1% of cancers. In 2018, 61,844 patients, including 38,975 new patients, were treated at AP-HP for cancer. To learn more, visit

Though his absence will impact the research abilities of the LSRHD team, this fellowship will provide Dr. Fuchs with advanced training and first-hand experience in a highly specialized field of pediatric liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery in one of Europe's largest centers specializing in this area of medical care and treatment. This will positively impact Dr. Fuchs’ expertise and bring value to the LSRHD research team and the University of Heidelberg Surgery Clinic.
