Biden’s top science adviser, Eric Lander, resigns amid reports of bullying, Politico
“President Joe Biden’s top science adviser, Eric Lander, resigned on Monday evening under an avalanche of backlash over reports of his bullying and mistreatment of subordinates. The resignation came despite initial insistence from the White House that Lander would remain in his post while corrective actions and remediations were applied to assure a better workplace environment at the Office of Science and Technology Policy.”
Chairwoman Johnson and Ranking Member Lucas Request Details of White House Investigation of OSTP Director Lander’s Misconduct
