- Following is a statement by Alan K. Cubbage, Northwestern University Vice President for University Relations
Wyndham Lathem, an associate professor of microbiology-immunology, has been placed on administrative leave and banned from entering the Northwestern University campuses. There is no indication of any risk to the Northwestern community from this individual at this time.
Lathem has been a faculty member in the department of microbiology-immunology since 2007.
This is now a criminal matter under investigation by the appropriate authorities, and Northwestern University is cooperating in that investigation.
