Winter 2017 - Dr. Allard is an amazing lecturer! His lectures are organized, dynamic, dense with information and full of great visuals. He's so passionate about genetics and has a gift for explaining concepts. Time flies in class, and there is never a dull moment. In just ten weeks he managed to cover so much material and make it accessible and interesting. After each lecture he encouraged thought-provoking, inclusive discussions that connected the topics to relevant social issues. He really welcomed everyone’s opinion and made us feel safe to express our thoughts. He keeps his standards high, he gives a lot and he asks a lot. Exams require a thorough understanding of concepts and a lot of memorization. As a person, Dr. Allard is really humble, funny and helpful. He answered my e-mails quickly and when I struggled, I went to his office and he explained the concepts and helped me develop my paper (he requires immaculate organization and clarity). If you mastered LS 2 or 3, you’ll be prepared. If not (like me), read the book in advance. I ended up with two thick notebooks full of hand-written lecture notes. Prepare to study a lot! In return you’ll learn fascinating material on genetics of immunity, aging, cancer, behavior and on biotechnology. This class inspired me to take his course on genes and environment which is a more in-depth study of epigenetics, equally fascinating. Gained a lot of knowledge in such a short time! An amazing and truly worthwhile class.
