Excellent
By Joe G. on 08. February 2019 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

Very clear lectures that flow seamlessly with easy to remember high yield points. Very easy to follow.

 
Logical organization!
By Lauren B. on 29. January 2019 for Phagocytic Cells

My last block contained a lot of immunology, and I did very poorly on the exam. I had an incredibly difficult time teasing out the most important information and organizing the immune response in a logical fashion. All the terms seemed jumbled in my head. This block is infectious disease, and requires building on the foundation of immunology--so I need to rebuild my foudation :p After watched just 3-4 of the Lecturio videos, I immensely regret not using it earlier. Thank you Dr. Delves, for being clear and logical it what is a very difficult and complex subject!

 
Great lectures - very useful
By imran s. on 27. January 2019 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

- Comments: please give examples for PRR & PAMPs and would have been useful if explained role of MHCI & II and CD4, Antigen/antibody in more detail. Thanks

 
A great overview of the Immune System
By Elzard S. on 02. December 2018 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

Dr. Delves is very clear in his explanations of the immune system and is able to distill the complex nature of the immune system into a digestible series of lectures for students just beginning their understanding of the immune system.
