The Necker Hospital is a university hospital, part of the Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris group, and is affiliated to the University of Paris Descartes. It offers a capacity of 400 beds for paediatrics and 200 beds for adults. Necker hospital is a place of history. The first transplantation was performed by Jean Hamburger at Christmas 1952 between a mother and her son, and a few years later, in 1959, a kidney transplant was successfully performed between 2 dizygotic twins several months after the same kind of transplantation had been performed in Boston. Since that time, more than 3,000 kidney transplants have been performed at Necker.
The Necker Hospital renal transplant program is one of the most active in Europe with ?200 adult and paediatric kidney transplantations per year. This activity provides the unique opportunity of developing clinical and translational researches, as well as basic science in transplantation immunobiology.
