The three cases highlight the broadth of Chinese economic espionage and scientific research theft in the United States Dr. Charles Lieber, chair of Harvard's Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, was allegedly being paid $50,000 per month and $158,000 living expenses by the Wuhan University of Technology. He was also given $1.5 million to establish a nanoscience research lab at the university. Lieber had served as the principal investigator of the Lieber Research Group at Harvard University. The group specializes in the area of nanoscience and received more than $15 million in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense. Yanqing Ye, a 29-year-old Chinese national and a lieutenant in the People's Liberation Army, was employed as a scientific researcher at Boston University. She's accused of accessing US military websites and sending US documents and information to China. Ye studied at the National University of Defense Technology, a top military academy directed by the Chinese Communist Party. Zaosong Zheng, a 30-year-old cancer researcher whose entry was sponsored by Harvard University, was indicted for trying to smuggle 21 vials of biological material out of the US to China. He had hidden the vials in a sock before boarding a plane on a flight to China.
