Administrative/Biographical history:

Physiology was taught from 1885 in the early lectures of the Ladies' Department, King's College London. In 1913 the first full-time appointment in Physiology was made at the then King's College for Women. From 1942 it was known as the Department of Physiology and Dietetics, then in 1954 a separate Department of Nutrition was formed. In 1985, when Queen Elizabeth College merged with King's College London and Chelsea College, the Department of Physiology became part of the Faculty of Life Sciences and for a while continued to be based on the Kensington site, as well as the Strand. It is currently known as the Division of Physiology, part of the GKT School of Biomedical Sciences.
