"If Peter were my professor at Harvard, I would nominate him for a teaching award. He teaches with great lucidity, thoughtfulness, and conviction. He has also planned material that is directly relevant to our professional growth in the biopharma industry. So often I found myself dazed in fascination by the subject matter and Peter's pedagogy."

- Sally Wang Liang
