Harvard University has sanctioned a professor with ties to disgraced financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

According to a report from Harvard Magazine, math professor Martin Nowak has been banned from starting new research projects and his access to undergraduate and post-doctoral students has been limited for the next two years.

The decision from Harvard Dean Claudine Gay comes after a revelation that Nowak’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics previously accepted $6.5 million in donations from Epstein.

Gay announced the sanctions for Nowak in a memo to students and faculty.

“Following a thorough review by the FAS, in which Professor Nowak had the opportunity to participate,” Gay wrote. “Professor Nowak’s actions were found to have violated several FAS and Harvard policies, including professional conduct, campus access, and guidelines for responding to requests for endorsements.”

Nowak was also have found to have given Epstein “unlimited access” to university grounds and had also given him his own keycard, passcode, and office on campus.

Nowak has been on unpaid leave since May 2020.

“While I have always been grateful to anyone who would support my research, I regret the connection I was part of fostering between Harvard and Jeffrey Epstein and the hurt that it has caused,” Nowak said in a statement, via ABC News. “I will take the lessons from this time with me as I move forward.”

Epstein was found unresponsive in his jail cell while awaiting sex trafficking charges.

Just 24 hours prior to Epstein being found dead in his Manhattan jail cell, court documents were unsealed that named a bunch of powerful and wealthy men including a prince and multiple politicians. There is also the fact that prison guards did not check on Epstein every 30 minutes on the night of his death despite that being a requirement.

Epstein had also recently been taken off of suicide watch, while his cellmate was transferred in the days prior to his death.
