Who discovered cell?



Robert Hooke discovered cells while observing the slices of plant cork under the microscope. He found several empty compartments or box-like structures arranged in a honeycomb pattern. He referred to each of these small rooms or compartments as a “Cell” (Cella in Latin means Small rooms). Hooke published these observations in his scientific book “Micrographia” in the year 1665. Thus, Robert Hooke became the first scientist to observe a cell under a microscope.
