anatomy

Here is my best explanation:

'science' is the definition.
(anatomy is a kind of science)

'a little bit grisly ultimately' is the wordplay.
'a' becomes 'an'.
'little bit' becomes 'atom'.
'ultimately' indicates one should take the final letters.
The last letter of 'grisly' is 'y'.
'an'+'atom'+'y'='ANATOMY'
