Joe DaCorta, a retired U.S. Navy medical officer, is the new chief technology officer at the life science firm Entegrion.

Entegrion is developing technology for the treatment of hemorrhages and  wounds and for tissue repair.

Before joining Entegrion, DaCorta was chief executive officer at Eiron Strategic Services, a company he launched in 2003. He worked with clients on partnerships to develop and deliver biomedical and other technologies related to public health and homeland security.

During his military career, DaCorta led the Expeditionary Medicine unit of the U.S. Marines Warfighting Laboratory at Quantico, Va. He is a graduate of Baylor University.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Joe¹s breadth of experience and record of success in carrying products through to commercialization," said Stan Eskridge, Entegrion’s chief executive officer. "His knowledge of the federal sector¹s needs for military and all-hazard preparedness technologies and familiarity with federal acquisition procedures will be extremely valuable as we work to develop this important market for Entegrion¹s products."
