WELCOME TO THE NAEF K. BASILE CANCER
The Naef K. Basile Cancer Institute (NKBCI) at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) is a state-of-the-art adult cancer facility providing comprehensive cancer treatment and research.
The Institute was established through the generous contribution of the Naef K. Basile Foundation. The late Lebanese-American physician’s lifelong wish was to give back to his country of birth, founding an institute that would compare with the best cancer centers in the world.
