China’s Military Siphoned Off U.S. Taxpayer Money

( The dismissal of a tenured Chinese professor by a top institution in the United States is one example of how the People’s Liberation Army infiltrated American research facilities and “laundered” American tax monies to fund China’s military R&D initiatives.

According to a report from June, Chuanshu Huang, MD, Ph.D., was fired for cause from New York University for failing to disclose his involvement with China’s Thousand Talents Plan and his role as a principal investigator and co-principal investigator on outside research projects for Wenzhou Medical University in China. Chuanshu Huang’s close ties to the People’s Liberation Army of China were not mentioned. Huang earned a degree from the Fourth Military Medical University of the People’s Liberation Army in Xi’an, China.

Around 1995, he started working at Zigang Dong’s lab at the University of Minnesota. Zigang Dong received over $23 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health.
One of the earliest waves of Chinese scientists to immigrate to the United States was Zigang Dong, who later served as one of several “anchors” for further waves of Chinese “scientific chain migration” to the country.

Reports show that when the FBI began looking into Zigang Dong’s potential failure to disclose foreign funding when applying for grants, Dong unexpectedly quit his post in May 2019. Dong then went on to become the Executive Director of the Hormel Institute at the University of Minnesota. Zigang Dong, who may be wanted by American authorities, has returned to China.

Chuanshu Huang earned a permanent post at the Nelson Institute of Environmental Medicine at New York University beginning around 2001 after completing additional training under Xianglin Shi at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Huang got around $12 million in research grant funds from the National Institutes of Health before being recently fired by New York University. He maintained a significant research collaboration with scientists from the People’s Liberation Army during his twenty years at New York University while receiving financial support from American taxpayers. This collaboration included teaching Chinese military personnel at New York University.

According to documentation, there are hundreds of additional comparable instances of Chinese scientists infiltrating American facilities that can be proven, but U.S. government officials and members of Congress choose to ignore them.
