Matthew Nathan, a retired U.S. Navy vice admiral, has joined Humanetics‘ medical advisory board and he will provide guidance to the company’s efforts to develop medical countermeasures to protect warfighters.

He supervised 64,000 military personnel as the 37th Navy surgeon general and chief of the service branch’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, Humanetics said Thursday.

“[Nathan] possesses a unique understanding of military medicine and the needs of warfighters, his medical expertise and training will be invaluable to our product development efforts,” said Ronald Zenk, CEO of Humanetics.
