Hormones and Signal Transduction

Hormones and Signal Transduction

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

Hormones and signal transduction are complicated and important topics for medical students to study. A majority of medications use receptors and intracellular signalling to cause change in the human body. You have to understand how these mechanisms work before prescribing drugs. Learn about hormones and signal transduction with Lecturio. Here we will cover general topics such as:

  • Receptors and Messengers
  • Protein Coupled Receptors
  • Actions of the Second Messenger

We also review specific topics such as:

  • alpha- and β-adrenergic Receptor Signaling
  • Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Signaling
  • HER2-Receptor and Bcr-Abl
  • Steroid Hormone Signaling

Learn with high yield lectures! Lecture reviews and quizzes are also available to customize your learning environment. Study from your computer, tablet or even your cell phone. Impress your instructors and surpass your colleagues on the boards!

prof Ahern is wonderful and funny! enjoyed all his lectures

Errors in Lecture Course
By Joseph D. on 03. June 2018 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Hello Dr. Ahern. Your lectures were phenomenal, but for several of the lectures the slides did not correspond with your lecture (they were of totally different topics) or they changed midway into into unrelated biochemistry topics. It may be best to review them and adjust the errors. However, your presentation was so so good that I was easily able to follow your lectures with the downloaded lecture slides.

Signal Transduction
By Mark A. on 28. April 2018 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Great lecturer very knowledgeable of subject matter at an admirable pace. Needed this in depth type of lecture in med school because signal transduction in med-school was highly schematic . Good job

Love the lectures
By Dr Gargi S. on 17. April 2018 for Hormones and Signal Transduction

Prof Kevin Ahern makes even a complex signaling process easy to understand and the association with day to day events. I have loved his other lectures too. I literally used to hate biochemistry but now I’m enjoying it and that is why I have given his lectures 5 stars
