Frontiers in Human Aging: Biomedical, Social, and Policy Perspectives -- Special Topics
Dr. Effros is one of the professors for GE Cluster on human aging. She mostly covers the biology related lectures since she specializes in pathology & immunology. Dr. Effros is really passionate about what she teaches, but she can be a little bit on the dry side. She is also a pretty lenient grader. I find her really easy to approach, and find her genuinely concerned about her students. I took her seminar (spring quarter) on immunology & aging, which I found very interesting as a pre-med student. It can be a little challenging for non-life science students, though. For the cluster in general, *it's really important to do well on the "midterms", which contains a lot of fact based questions from lecture. GO TAKE GOOD NOTES IN LECTURE. *your paper grades totally depend on your TA. My TA graded me down just because I didn't have the proper APA citation. so read the rubric carefully and cite correctly! overall, it was a good cluster imo. Not as hard as the other ones, and fairly interesting if you are interested in health-related issues in general. good luck!
