    What does "denied knowledge" mean?

    Context:
    Dr. Braunwald's lab was the setting for the infamous case of John Darsee. Darsee was thought to be brilliant by Dr. Braunwald. Young fellow researchers in the laboratory caught Darsee fabricating results. Braunwald denied knowledge of this academic misconduct despite two earlier accusations and his own internal investigation which found "no misleading information" (ref 3).

    In this context, 'said he didn't know about [it]'.
