King’s contributions to the understanding of human anatomy date back to the seventeenth century, with the pioneering work of Thomas Wharton, and extend to the present.

Anatomy at King’s College has an international reputation for scholarship and teaching, The Guy’s campus is home to the world-famous Gordon Museum of Pathology and has long been linked to the production of Gray’s Anatomy.
