I hadn't understood the topic,but finally I got it . Thank you very much!

Disappointed with lack of detail
By Kerry T. on 29. November 2017 for Acute Inflammation

A very concise lecture but too much so. I was really hoping to learn more about mechanisms and detail. For example, there was no detail provided about the mechanisms involved with how vascular permeability increases. There was no explanation for what cells produce bradykinin and how this causes vasodilation. This was not advanced enough for medical school.

Wonderful teaching

Wonderful teaching. Dr. Peter makes it simple and interesting. Thank you, sir.

Clear, concise, and outstanding review of the innate immune system.
By Stephen H. on 04. November 2017 for Innate Immune System

Outstanding breakdown of the components of the innate immune system and response. The presented organization of the complement system activation was superb. Dr. Delves' presentation made understanding the complexity of this process rather simple.
