Theodor Schwann did not receive any awards during his lifetime. However, the German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy (DGNN) now has a "Theodor Schwann-Prize" in his honor. /Edit from a different person (BL)/: In 1839 - the same year as Microscopical Researches was published - Schwann, aged 28, became professor of anatomy at the University of Louvain, Belgium.

In the 1830's the German scientist Matthias Schleiden observed a variety of plants and concluded that all plants are composed of cells. Another German scientist, Theodor Schwann, made similar observations on animals. The observations and conclusions of these scientists are summarized as the cell theory, one of the fundamentals of modern biology. THEODOR SCHWANN, MATTHIAS SCHLEIDEN, ANTON VAN LEEUWENHOEK,ROBERT HOOKE and RUDOLF VIRCHOW are responsible for the cell theory.
Educated at Heidelberg, German botanist Mathias Jacob Schleiden was the co-founder of the cell theory in botany, which asserted that plants were composed of cells. The other co-founder was German physiologist Theodor Schwann. He mostly focused his attention on plants, and that they were made of cells.
