Amazing and highly useful
By Anna J. on 27. July 2021 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

They give clear explanations on all topics in such a way that it is easier to grasp. I personally enjoy learning more about a particular topic and Lecturio is the perfect platform to do that as well. I highly recommend Lecturio to all students for better understanding of relevant topics.

Good course if you like detail/context for everything
By Arjavon T. on 27. June 2021 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

I honestly had a lot of fun listening to Professor Ahern. You can tell he is really passionate about Biochem. I learned a lot. Great course if you're interested in understanding aspects of the metabolic pathways conceptually while appreciating the details/context that enrich your understanding of them and how they are interrelated.

Excellent Presentation
