Great lecture. Dr. Wilson's lectures are great.
By Andres d. on 16. June 2022 for Musculoskeletal Physiology

I love Dr. Wilson's lectures because his explanations are easy to understand even though he attacks very complex topics.

 
Great lecture. Dr. Wilson's lectures are great.
By Andres d. on 16. June 2022 for Reproductive Physiology

Great course! I will recommend it to all of my peers. I love that the speaker speaks clearly and slowly, although the pace becomes a normal conversational pace at 1.25x speed. This allows me to go through the content that is easy for me to understand quickly (at 1.25x to 1.5x speed) while I go through more difficult content at a slower pace (1.0x speed) without having the speak sound like he was drunk (0.75x to 0.5x speed).

 
Provides deep understanding in a short amount of time
By Mohammed S. on 07. June 2022 for Adaptive Immune System

Not much needs to be said, the presentation speaks for itself! Watch for yourself and you'll see how informative this is! The Genetic recombination of B-cells' antibodies and receptors was so hard for me to understand, and all it took was one video (less than 10 minutes) to understand the concept fully. Great professor!

 
Great intro to a non-expert - like me
By Antonio M. on 07. June 2022 for Cellular Structure

Really liked Enough chemistry to explain it / not more Shows that she is passonate about the subject
