John Lee (pathologist)

John Lee (pathologist)

John Andre Lee is an English consultant histopathologist at Rotherham General Hospital and clinical professor of pathology at Hull York Medical School. Lee gained his medical degree, a BSc. and a Ph.D. in physiology at University College London. He is most notable to the wider public as co-presenter (with Gunther von Hagens) of "Anatomy for Beginners" (screened in the UK on Channel 4 in 2005), "Autopsy: Life and Death" (Channel 4, 2006) and "Autopsy: Emergency Room" (Channel 4, 2007).

In the first series, various aspects human anatomy were explored, with von Hagens dissecting cadavers to illustrate certain points. In the later series particular diseases were highlighted and explained, again with dissections of cadavers, allowing direct observation of the symptoms in humans.

During these programmes, Lee provided the background information about, and elucidation regarding, von Hagens' ongoing dissections. In essence, he was used to 'cut away' whilst the less telegenic parts of the dissection proceeded. This background information was usually shown on a television monitor and ensured that the audience could follow the doctors as they worked. Further anatomical and medical information was demonstrated on live models (naked persons with the relevant internal organs drawn and/or projected on to their body).
