Second year students at the New England College of Optometry were invited to attend a keynote lecture by Dr. Shivang R. Dave, PhD, Co-founder and CEO of PlenOptika.
Dr. Dave is a passionate speaker about global health and entrepreneurship. He has over a decade of entrepreneurial experience working to innovate, translate, and commercialize three separate biomedical technologies.
