Everything was clearly explained, especially helpful in the times of the pandemic. Thank you very much professor!

Great deconstruction of connective tissue
By Eleonora M. on 05. March 2020 for Connective Tissue

best way to explain the mesenchyme, introducing stem cells and stressing most important points

Stem cells, Perycites, Epithelial cells or Smooth muscle cells.
By Eleonora M. on 02. March 2020 for Cells: Adult Stem Cell Niches, Lymphocyte and Plasma Cell

Really found this clear and I have learned that there are compartments of stem cells in our body (intestine and perycites)

Clever lecturer
By Emilio L. on 13. February 2020 for Connective Tissue

He explains slowly and with good examples. I can notice his expertise in this area. I really like his lectures!
