Dr. Ahern is a fabulous instructor. He goes into just enough detail on all the important content and pathways, bringing everything into a more holistic view of biochemistry. A+!!!!

Biochemistry who every thought it could be fun to learn
By Steve P. on 07. April 2017 for Enzymes and Enzyme Kinetics

These lessons are brilliant enjoyed them so much I have bought some books by Kevin Ahern, PhD the questions at the end also reinforce learning.

Overall good videos
By Azwer A. on 06. April 2017 for Enterohepatic Circulation and Health

I was impressed by the knowledge of the professor. However, the very short length of each lecture was disturbing and distracting.

Exceptional, very detailed and easy to understand. The slide presentation was very organised.
