Jeremiah Sullivan was a Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois, who served as Director of the ACDIS Program from 1986 to1994 and as Head of the Physics Department from 2000 to 2006. He superbly combined an intense interest in fundamental physics with a deep and life-long commitment to making the world a better and safer place.

To honor his work and commitment, ACDIS hosts Jeremiah Sullivan Memorial Lectures at least once a year. This tradition began in 2018 and was unfortunately halted due to COVID-19 in 2020. This year, we will be starting the Memorial Lectures once again on Thursday, May 5th, 2022.
