Moncef Slaoui, the former head scientist for the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed, has been fired from his position as chair of a biomedical company’s board of directors after an internal investigation substantiated allegations against him of sexual harassment.
Slaoui was chair of the board directors for Galvani Bioelectronics, a company formed through a partnership between pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and Verily Life Sciences (formerly Google Life Sciences). GSK is the majority shareholder of Galvani.
According to an announcement by GSK, the company received a letter from one of its employees containing allegations of sexual harassment and “inappropriate conduct” by Slaoui, which occurred several years ago while he was working there.
