PRR lecture
By Sayed H. on 04. August 2019 for Innate Immune System

the lecturer's voice is calm while explaining, but still manages to show enthusiasm, which is good, however i disliked the lecture about the types of PRR as I didn't know what exactly to take from it and it was just a memorization of random 3 lettered words.

Exactly what I needed right now! Thank you

Way better than the 3 hour lecture at our school. Thank you.

Good detail, but missed earlier regions of Leukocyte migration
By Matthieu M. on 19. March 2019 for Steps Following the Acute Inflammation

When you touched on leukocyte migration, you began at the stage of "adhesion" when many medical students should include the first two steps before this. It should include Margination, where leukocytes follow lamina flow while being pushed by erythrocytes onto the barriers of the endothelial cells, then rolling, where selectin proteins are adhesion molecules which weakly attach onto these leukocytes causing them to "roll" .... and then do i believe you should be able to talk about the adhesion and transmigration parts. If you could add this in, it would be quite useful. especially because many students are trusting these lecture to have the utmost information. Thank you very much. When you spoke on the topic itself though, it was quite organised and detailed.
