Kerriann Greenhalgh - Founder, Chairman and CEO
Kerriann Greenhalgh
Kerriann Greenhalgh
Dr. Kerriann Greenhalgh is a wife, mom and CEO of KeriCure. Dr. Greenhalgh developed the KeriCure technology in her garage after her husband had a serious brush with an MRSA Staph infection that nearly cost him his hand, all from a small cut where a bandage couldn’t protect it. After graduate school at the University of South Florida where she received her PhD in Organic Chemistry and was part of the team that developed KeriCure’s drug delivery technology, she was an initial member of MiMedx Inc (later MiMedx Group) as lead of R&D and product development, a company with over 10 FDA and EU clearances in orthopedic devices. Dr. Greenhalgh has dedicated her PhD and later research efforts to developing safe, natural, and effective wound care and hemostatic products. As a mom and owner of four rescue dogs and two rescue cats (along with a slew of other pets!), she has dedicated her life’s work to making sure that there is a natural and safe alternative to bandages (with their allergenic adhesives), harsh chemicals, and antibiotics to treat and protect wounds.
