Presentation presenter mismatch
By Mesfin D. on 26. October 2021 for Cellular Structure

The content of the lecture/presentation is excellent. Has somebody else prepared the material?

 
Hormones and signal Transduction by doctor Kevin Ahern is a great course.
By Gulbanu S. on 20. October 2021 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Yes, hormones and their transduction signals are important like a cardiac conduction system starting form the Sino-atrial node (SA) finishing in the Purkinjie fibres . I mean Hormones and signal transduction are really well explained by a doctor doctor Kevin Ahern . He has been presenting the most complicated part of the medicine course so well. In terms of pregnant patient for example who does need an extra attention and management as they go though various hormonal changes while caring out pregnancy and delivery tasks. I cant thank enough for his contribution . I much appreciated.
