With a deep-seated passion for biotechnology and biosciences, Aramis Khorchidian is eager to explore this branch of science through his undergraduate program. His interest in the biotechnology sector was sparked upon reading the book ‘Regenesis’ by George Church and Ed Regis. From there he began to develop great interest in specific areas of research including immunology-oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, bispecific monoclonal antibodies, and cell signalling.
While he has his sights set on eventually working in biotech’s tight interface between R&D and finance, Aramis would first like to hone his research skills at university and then attain valuable work experience at an established biotech company. He hopes this will eventually allow him to become the architect of next-gen biopharma companies that will bring sustainable, profitable, and life-changing therapies to market.
Aramis Khorchidian credits his success in education to his organisation and time management skills. As Aramis contends, “No matter one’s profession, these are qualities that are essential. Knowing what to do and when to do it is the key to efficiency, productivity and good performance in all areas of life.”
Aramis has attained both The Bronze Standard and The Silver Standard of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. He was a repeat Academic Honor Roll Student in high school, having also graduated with this distinction. He served the head of his campus’ Academics Committee from 2016-2017, which helped organize a variety of events including science fairs.

His love for Thai Boxing developed more recently but has proved to be one of his most rewarding hobbies. For Aramis, Muay Thai style fighting is an incredibly fascinating sport that teaches respect and perseverance as well as builds a strong mind.
