Sponsored by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Student Science Enrichment Program, the American Indian BioMedical Science (AIMS ) program creates a structured summer enrichment experience to engage NC American Indian high school students with inquiry-based learning resources through the lens of regenerative medicine to impact interest, skills and, ultimately, the pursuit of health and biomedical science careers.

The program is part of pipeline programming offered by the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity, a cornerstone in exposing underserved communities to opportunities within the health sciences.
