  • Biology
  • Who were the scientists that discovered cells?
  • Great question Mark! The scientists who were involved in the cell theory were: Hooke, Brown, Schleiden, Schwann, Virchow, Leewenhoek, and Redi.
  • Ohhh ok! Thank you, I've always been wondering about this theory. In my opinion, I think Leeuwenhoek is the most important, because he has improved the magnification of microscopes and discovered bacteria. We now use microscopes to discover illness and diseases in humans.
  • Robert Hooke discovered the cellular composition of cork and introduced the word cell to science
  • Brown discovered the nucleus. Schleiden discovered plants were made up of cells. Schwann discovered animals were made up of cells. Virchow stated all living things come from other living things. Francesco demonstrated the presence of maggots in putrefying meat does not result from spontaneous generation, but from eggs laid on the meat by flies.
  • Anton van Leeuwenhoek has made three contributions. He has improved the magnification of microscopes by polishing lenses in 1647. In 1676, "animalcules" were discovered. Also, in 1683, he discovered bacteria from a sample of saliva from his mouth.
