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.
