Along with that of an astronomer, Geoffrey Marcy. Ayala, 2010 Templeton winner, had stepped down in 2018 at UCal Irvine due to allegations of sexual harassment. The NAS bylaws were changed in 2019 to permit expulsion:
With the potential moves against Marcy and Ayala, “We are watching social change happening in front of our eyes,” says Nancy Hopkins, an NAS member and emeritus biologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It has been a long time coming.” …Meredith Wadman, “National academy may eject two famous scientists for sexual harassment” at The Scientist
