Short and to the point
By Ann D. on 03. July 2020 for Junctional Diversity, N-Nucleotide Addition and Somatic Hypermutation – Lymphocyte Development

Easy to understand, and in depth enough for my school's requirements.

Clear, precise, very helpful lectures
By Alexandra F. on 23. May 2020 for Adaptive Immune System

My university study curriculum for immunology is quite packed with details regarding the adaptative immune system, and not only. Thus, it was a true blessing to get to understand the bigger picture first with the help of these lectures, so that I will further add the details required.

Quick turnaround in answering questions. He really knows what he's talking about; he doesn't speak vague chatter. I like it very much.
