Oladele Ogunseitan (‘dele) is Professor and founding chair of the Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention at the University of California, Irvine, where he is also Professor of Social Ecology.  Dele researches the intersection of industrial development and environmental quality to discover solutions to problems that contribute to societal burden of disease. He is the author of Microbial Diversity (Blackwell-Wiley, 2005) and editor of Green Health (Sage, 2011). His articles have appeared in Science, Nature, The Lancet Global Health, Bulletin of the World Health Organization, Environment International, Environmental Health Perspectives, and Environmental Science & Technology. In 2018, he earned Board Certification in Environmental Science from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists.

He co-chairs the Green Chemistry Advisory Board of Apple, Inc.; He serves on the Hoover Medal Board of Award; and the University of California Global Health Institute. He served for three years on the State of California’s Green Ribbon Science Panel, and for two years on the State’s Advisory Committee on the Community Protection and Hazardous Waste Reduction Initiative. He led a UC Systemwide program on Research and Education in Green Materials.

Dele is an alumni faculty fellow of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. In 2016, he received the Jefferson Science Fellowship from the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. In 2018, he received a meritorious honor award from the U.S. Department of State for exceptional teamwork and contributions to the successful achievement of U.S. goals at the third United Nations Environment Assembly.



A blacksmith’s son who turned his natural inquisitiveness into a career as one of the world’s leading inventors of scientific instruments, Dr. Arnold Beckman is a classic American success story. Dr. Beckman took what life gave him and through creativity and persistence, forged a better existence for himself and others. This desire to continually search for solutions eventually led him to the invention of the pH meter and the DU Spectrophotometer, devices that revolutionized analytical chemistry, and earned him a place in the National Inventors Hall of Fame. With his wife Mabel and daughter Patricia, the Beckman family has donated millions to academic research and medical facilities. Mabel died in 1989, Arnold in 2004, and Patricia in 2011.
