The Biomedical Association for the Interest of Minority Students (BioAIMS)



The Biomedical (Biosciences) Association for the Interest of Minority Students (BioAIMS) is an inclusive organization that provides a welcoming home for all Biosciences students at Stanford to celebrate their identities--especially those that have traditionally been marginalized in academia.

We actively build this community through cultural celebrations, peer support, and career development programming. To address the issues facing our communities, we engage in social justice advocacy and local outreach initiatives.

The goals of BioAIMS are:

  • To promote the recruitment and active retention of underrepresented students for graduate studies in the biological sciences
  • To facilitate academic success through academically focused workshops
  • To stimulate professional growth through career development sessions
  • To foster a student support network through social interactions
