About Us

Why are we called Jericho Sciences?

The name Jericho Sciences comes from the biblical event called the Battle of Jericho. This story is from the Book of Joshua, and it tells of the conquest of Jericho. Jericho was a city in Canaan (it is now a city in Palestine’s Jordan Valley), that was surrounded by historically impenetrable walls. The Israelites marched around these walls for seven days and on the last day, they blew their Ram’s Horns and yelled. Jericho’s walls fell down. To us, the walls of Jericho symbolize continuing challenges with the HIV-1 virus. With persistence and innovative ideas, we can conquer it.

What is the meaning of the logo?

The letter “J” in our registered trademark logo represents an elongated horn similar to a Jewish Ram’s Horn (Shofar). A Shofar is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world, and it was probably the trumpet that was sounded when Joshua fought the battle of Jericho. The “h” is curved to the right at the top to represent a Shepherd’s Staff.
