Hormones and signal Transduction by doctor Kevin Ahern is a great course.
By Gulbanu S. on 20. October 2021 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Yes, hormones and their transduction signals are important like a cardiac conduction system starting form the Sino-atrial node (SA) finishing in the Purkinjie fibres . I mean Hormones and signal transduction are really well explained by a doctor doctor Kevin Ahern . He has been presenting the most complicated part of the medicine course so well. In terms of pregnant patient for example who does need an extra attention and management as they go though various hormonal changes while caring out pregnancy and delivery tasks. I cant thank enough for his contribution . I much appreciated.

 
Explained well
By Prashant U. on 07. October 2021 for Structure – Amino Acids

I loved this lecture! Everything was so well explained: simple, straightforward, and I especially love few external tidbits thrown in such as the meteorite portion. It helps to remember these facts. Thank you!

 
Finally it makes sense!

This lecture was one of my favorites as it made something so confusing perfectly digestible.
