Robert Hooke Looked at thin slices of cork, and saw tiny boxes which he called cells. Then proved Van Leeuwenhoek right by repeating his pepper water experiment.
Matthias Schleiden Studied plant parts under a microscope and concluded that all plants were made of cells.
Theodor Schwann Studied animal parts under a microscope and concluded that all LIVING THINGS were made of cells.
Rudolph Virchow Studied all types of cells and concluded that all cells come from existing cells.
