Theodor Schwann- Omnis cellula e cellula

The German biologist Theodor Schwann (1810-1882) is considered a founder of the cell theory. He also discovered pepsin, the first digestive enzyme prepared from animal tissue and experimented to disprove spontaneous generation.
In 1855, Rudolf Virchow proposed the axiom ‘Omnis cellula e cellula’— every cell arises from another cell.
