Erimos was originally founded as BioCure Medical, LLC in 2000, in collaboration with researchers at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Dr. Ru Chih Huang, Professor of Biology, is Chief Scientific Advisor to Erimos and lead inventor of Erimos’ technology platform, which JHU licensed to Erimos.

In 2004 the company was changed to Erimos, the Greek word for desert. Erimos’ technology platform stems from derivatives of a compound extracted from a common desert bush. Erimos has corporate offices in Raleigh, NC with additional offices in Houston, TX. Erimos also has a processing plant in Juarez, Mexico.
