Cell Theory Jordan and Natalie

  • Zacharias Jansen

    Zacharias Jansen
    Invented first compound microscope, enabling him and others to observe cells and create the cell theory.
  • Francesco Redi

    Francesco Redi
    His work disproved those who did not follow the cell theory, therefore shaping its making.
  • Antonie von Leeuwenhoek

    Antonie von Leeuwenhoek
    He created microscopes and was the first to observe a single-celled animal and to study a red blood cell under a microscope.
  • Robert Hooke

    Robert Hooke
    Robert Hooke Robert Hooke holds the credit for discovering the building blocks of all life.
  • Abraham Trembley

    Abraham Trembley
    Studied polyps, and realized that they just created a new individual. This was helpful in proving the cell theory.
  • Caspar Friedrich Wolff

    Caspar Friedrich Wolff
    Has been proven to have 'foreshadwed' the cell theory,
  • Robert Brown

    Robert Brown
    He discovered the cell nucleus and the cytoplasmic streaming, helping shape what we know about cells.
  • Henri Dutrochet

    Henri Dutrochet
    Has credit for discovering cell biology and cells in plants.
  • Francois-Vencent Raspail

    Francois-Vencent Raspail
    One of the founders of the cell theory: "all cells are derived from pre-exsisting cells"
  • Matthias Schleiden

    Matthias Schleiden
    He realized the importance of the cell nucleus. He also stated that the different parts of plants are cells (he was a botonist)
  • Franz Julius Ferdinand Meyen

    Franz Julius Ferdinand Meyen
    He discovered cells in different species.
  • Hugo von Mohl

    Hugo von Mohl
    Described the behavior of cell division. Had a good knowledge of the cell wall. This affected cell theory through the knowledge of the cells in which is was based upon.
  • Theodor Schwann

    Theodor Schwann
    Development of cell theory, the discovery of Schwann Cell in the periphial nervous system.
  • Rudolf Virchow

    Rudolf Virchow
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Virchow He was the first to recognize leukemia cells.
  • Gregor Mendel

    Gregor Mendel
    Researched genetics, using the cell theory along the way.
  • Pierre J. F. Turpin

    Researched cell division in algea. Picture unavailable http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Jean_Fran%C3%A7ois_Turpin
  • Anton Schneider

    Anton Schneider
    Saw chromisomes in mitosis, which somehow helped the cell theory.
  • Robert Remak

    Robert Remak
    He is credited for identifying the cell membrane in Cell Devision
  • Loius Pasteur

    Loius Pasteur
    Studies of microbes helped to prove the cell theory was correct. http://kentsimmons.uwinnipeg.ca/cm1504/celltheory.htm
  • Camillo Golgi

    Camillo Golgi
    Discovery of black reaction allowed others to study parts of the cells that had never been seen before, therefore contributing to the cell theory.
