By Kieffer D. on 03. August 2022 for Proximal Convoluted Tubule (PCT): Proximal Nephron

Dr. Raj is breaking this down and is the reason I will likely resub my lecturio. Clear, concise, and engaging.

By Jessica M. on 26. July 2022 for Tubular Transport by Nephron Segment

This is an excellent lecture that integrates other body systems and applies the effects to the kidneys. Understanding where and why all of the hormones act on the nephron was thoroughly and expertly explained. Very, very well done.
