HARVARD UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY CHAIR CHARGED WITH LYING ABOUT CHINA CONTRACT

On 28 January, NBC reported that US federal prosecutors had charged a top Harvard University scientist – Charles M. Lieber, the chair of Harvard’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology – with lying to the Department of Defense about his work for a Chinese-run talent recruitment programme.  He allegedly violated federal law by not disclosing his involvement in China’s Thousand Talents Plan to the DoD.  The Thousand Talents programme tries to recruit experts from Western universities to work in China.
