Lecture to mark World Anatomy Day

In this lecture, Editor-in-Chief of Gray’s Anatomy, Professor Susan Standring, will consider questions such as: what is anatomy and is it important? When and how was anatomical knowledge acquired and the body mapped? Who needs to know anatomy and how do they use their knowledge?
