Read A Terrible Mistake by H P Albarelli, Jr., about Frank Olsen' s death. Scientist Olsen blurted out to gov colleagues that gov was working on aerosoling biological, chemical weapons. Authorities tried to claim he jumped out a window in NYC a couple weeks after takin '___'. But his sons exhumed him 40 years post mortem, discovered blunt force trauma, whoops. History Channel had a show on it years ago. Trineday.com book publisher.

About 17 years ago Stephen Quayle posted names of dozens+ of microbiologists many specializing in viruses and DNA sequencing dying under suspicious circumstances. a reply to: Thecakeisalie

It only takes one psycho working at a weapons lab to get this party started. Hopefully someone working in that lab wasn't bearing a grudge towards the Chinese govt. Remember the guy in 12 monkeys? That's what we might have here.

Somewhat confused by this thread. Charles Lieber wasn't smuggling anything. He was arrested for not disclosing ties to China to US funding agencies and the Pentagon. His case is in no way related to the other two, except that it involves China. It is not uncommon in academia to receive funding from more than one institution and to have honorary titles, international or otherwise. China in particular has been undertaking a huge push to attract international talent (not just from the US) to up their standing within the broader scientific community. Lieber's alleged crime was not disclosing his financial ties and lying about them when asked. It was not espionage or giving China IP that belonged to Harvard. He was not smuggling research. As best as I can see, he lied (several times) for financial gain, and not much else.

If you did nothing wrong would you lie to the DoD multiple times??

He was also principal investigator on at least six DoD grants worth over $8 million, and principal investigator on over $10 million worth of grants for the NIH. Both of these positions require vetting for conflict of interest.

Sounds like espionage to me.

I never said he did nothing wrong. The reason he hid it was almost certainly because if he had of disclosed, he would have been precluded from the DoD grants. As you say, that’s $8 mill worth of funding.

As for espionage:




He has not been charged with economic espionage for passing along intellectual property. Instead, the allegation focuses on a financial relationship Lieber developed with the Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) and China’s Thousand Talents Program beginning in 2011.
