It was ok
By Joseph A. on 16. June 2020 for Primary Immunodeficiencies Associated with Autoimmune Disease

I had a professor that would just stand there and talk also, not very helpful. At least point to the picture or something.

Very clear

Great Lecture
By Laura P. on 19. March 2019 for B-Cell Immunodeficiencies: Common Variable Immunodeficiency, X-linked Agammaglobulinemia and Selective IgA Deficiency – Primary Immunodeficiency

The lecture was amazing, it had all the important details that my textbook had, but at the same time it was very punctual and didactic. I was able to visualize all the things that I read with good examples.
