“lying about his ties to China, specifically a technology university in the heart of coronavirus hub city Wuhan”
Just last week, a high ranking chemistry professor at Harvard was charged for this. What is going on?
Campus Reform reports:
Another medical research prof with secret ties to China
Yet another university medical research professor has been charged for alleged ties to Chinese efforts to steal American research.
Just a week after Harvard University chemistry chairman Charles Lieber was indicted for allegedly lying about his ties to China, specifically a technology university in the heart of coronavirus hub city Wuhan, court records allege that another professor lied about ties to China.
Newly-unearthed court records reveal that Emory University neuroscientist Xiojiang Li was fired in late 2019 after being charged with lying about his own ties to China. Li was part of the same Chinese program as Lieber.
The “Thousand Talents” plan recruits American academics to collaborate with Chinese universities.
A 2019 senate report called the Thousand Talents program an inherent violation of “U.S. standards of research integrity” noting that its practices “place members in compromising legal and ethical positions, and undermine fundamental U.S. scientific norms of transparency, reciprocity, and integrity.”
While Emory fired both Li and his wife, he was the only individual named in the court documents, which alleges that he was simultaneously receiving salaries from both the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Emory University while purporting to only be working for Emory.
