Yet, it has now become clear that our grant-making agencies and law enforcement authorities have allowed our direct competitors, particularly China, to effectively leapfrog America by stealing this research for their own gain. There is no federal requirement for universities and research institutions that sponsor foreign researchers to put policies in place to safeguard federally funded research and sensitive technologies from being stolen. And were already seeing the consequences.
Most recently, Charles Lieber, chair of the Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department at Harvard University, was accused of lying to U.S. authorities about his participation in the Chinese government-run Thousand Talents Plan, which can pay elite researchers from around the world hundreds of thousands of dollars to conduct research in Chinese laboratories.
The criminal complaint filed by the Department of Justice alleges the Chinese government paid Dr. Lieber, as a Thousands Talents member, up to $50,000 a month in salary, $150,000 annually for living expenses and more than $1.5 million to run a shadow lab in China. In return, Lieber a U.S. citizen allegedly agreed to share cutting-edge, U.S. taxpayer-funded research with Wuhan University of Technology, which is part of the Chinese governments national university system. At the same time he was allegedly being funded by China, Dr. Lieber also received U.S. government funding to conduct research for the Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health despite those agencies requiring that grant recipients disclose foreign financial conflicts of interest.

Where are the news stories on ties of US Academia and students who were tied to Wuhan ?
Lieber needs to be introduced to the working end of a rope tied to a branch on a tall tree.
Friend of mine worked at XXXXXXX. When China reps visited, everyone cleared their desk except for one item.
China, and for that matter, Japan,Korea,and India have never done anything well except corporate espionage. Everything they sell is a knockoff of a patented item sold for less with slave or near slave labor. It’s the same thing they do with their military hardware, spy, then build it at home. If ever a country deserved to be obliterated, it’s China.
It is not theft. They paid the Clintons good money for it.
Addendum to post #5: The Chinese not only paid good money to the Clintons for our secrets, technology, and research, but at the time, no one gave gave a damn about it. they even thought it was cute. Why cry now?
The CDC became a social justice government agency supporting affirmative action hires and had led to incompetence on a level that other government agencies can only envy.
Theft of our research is how Chinese researchers do research.
The theft will never stop as long as we allow immigration from China and students from China. The commies will always use those pathways to insert their spies into strategic positions in US industries, universities and the military.
