Quote: "A scientist who is a leading expert on leeches was fired this month from his curator’s post at the American Museum of Natural History after the museum found that he had sexually harassed and bullied a graduate student who was doing research under his supervision.

The museum cited the research adviser, Mark E. Siddall, for having violated a museum policy that prohibits sexual relationships between museum staff and mentees who are under their academic supervision."
