54 Scientists Lose Jobs Amid NIH Probe Into Foreign Ties

Article:

An ongoing inquiry by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) into grantees’ failures to disclose foreign ties has resulted in the firings and resignations of 54 scientists.

The NIH investigation has investigated 189 scientists for undisclosed foreign ties, with 93 percent of the hidden funding coming from China. Some 77 grantees have been removed from the NIH system as a result of the probe.

The numbers were revealed on June 12 in a presentation by Michael Lauer, the NIH deputy director for extramural research. The NIH’s effort dates back to August 2018, when the organization warned universities across the nation that some foreign entities have been systematically targeting NIH researchers to divert intellectual property and obtain confidential information.

The NIH effort is part of a larger U.S. government campaign to counter the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) infiltration of American academia. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI have made arrests and reached settlements in several cases involving researchers as part of its broader China Initiative launched in November 2018.

At the time of the investigation, some 143 scientists in 27 states held active grants worth $164 million. More than 80 percent were Asian, reflecting the CCP’s targeting of Chinese researchers.

The CCP aggressively recruits foreign researchers as part of its Thousand Talents Program, which is seen by the U.S. government as a cover for obtaining U.S. intellectual property.

The NIH inquiry has directly resulted in prosecutions by the DOJ. After the NIH flagged an Emory University professor’s failure to disclose foreign work on grant applications, the DOJ indicted Xiao-Jiang Li, 63, of Atlanta. Li was sentenced in May to a year of probation and ordered to pay $35,000 to the IRS for the income from China he concealed on his tax returns.

Similar to new revelations about academia. Imho, this seems to me to be another front in the new Civil War.

Racist. Don’t you know that the word ‘swamp’ evokes images of antebellum southern plantations?!

This isn't a civil war. It's a war being waged by China and the UN against the US to topple our power and install China as the world power through the UN.

Politics-driven "science". What a good idea.
