Video: The Discovery of Cells – A View of the Cell

How in the world did we get to where we are today, in terms of our knowledge of cells? Well go ahead and watch this video, and you’ll see. In it, I talk about the History of the cell theory, starting all the way from the invention of the Microscope by the dutch scientist Anton van Leeuwenhoek.

See how knowledge increased from that basic discovery to all the things we know today about the structure and function of the organelles inside the cell.

  1. Thank you for posting very clear videos. I really understand the way you explain.

    In this video, you said the Anton VAn Leeuwenhek was the first microscope inventor but So far I remember is Hans and zacharis Janssen is the one who invented first microscope.Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Thank you

  2. Hans and Zacharis Janssen invented the first compound light microscope – using multiple lenses. However, the first microscope was a simple light microscope, and that was invented by Leeuwenhoek. Hope that helps.

    All the best!
