After the discovery of stem cells and the continuous findings in molecular biology, the concept of regenerating a damaged organ became more vivid. With the exponential growth of computer powers and microchips, it is most likely that artificial organs and bionics will have a great share in replacing organs in the coming years. The discoveries are expected to be integrated and used in our lives sooner than we expect. While most of the literature categorizes artificial organs as part of regenerative medicine, we identify electronic/mechanical devices as a separate entity (bionic medicine).

Our network provides information for both professionals and patients interested in the latest updates in regenerative and bionic medicine. The network also acts as a link between scientists and researchers in various fields, to work together for the improvement of scientific research in the Middle East and Africa.

About us News/Updates
The RBMN was formed in June 2013 by a group of physicians from Cairo Universityto foster the exchange of information on regenerative and bionic medicine. Being established in Egypt, the network is considered the first in the Middle East and Africa to merge the two fields in one network. Our mission is to assemble, connect and bring together scientists, researchers, clinicians, engineers, and other professionals from various institutes, universities and companies to work together to promote the study of stem cells, tissue engineering, biomaterials, cloning, gene therapy, nanotechnology, mechanical devices and roboticsfor thepreventio
