Really great lecturer who utilizes excellent diagrams. Engaging and easy to follow.

Thank you!!
By Juan A. on 14. September 2018 for Mesoderm Derivatives: Lateral Plate Mesoderm and Body Wall

The lectures are concise, very to the point but yet hit all the critical points and it is very easy to understand. Embryology for me is really difficult to picture. However, after watching these videos, I feel as though I can finally make sense out of what I am reading and what is being presented in class.

Great lecture but needs more questions
By Ramil D. on 10. September 2018 for Ectoderm Derivatives and Neurulation

Clear and concise. Also appreciate the pace that he was going. Wish there were more questions though
