In the preceding essay, we have known through information and data that in China there are two P4 laboratories – one is Wuhan Institute of Virology, the other Harbin Institute of Virology. We also have known that there are two P3 laboratories in Wuhan – one in Wuhan University, the other in Wuhan Institute of Virology; these two P3 labs use the same title the National Key Laboratory of Virology. So, what is the job of these two P3 labs? What is the relationship between P3 labs? What are the relationships among P3 labs and P4 labs? What is the strategic deployment among them? We will figure out in the following essay.
Here is the detail.
The following is a memorial article with full emotion and sincere.

Tian Bo, the famous virologist Academician of out country, was born in Huantai County in 1931, and unfortunately passed away in Beijing in Dec. 15, 2019. His immortal demise is a huge loss to our scientific community, especially the virology community. As his student and colleague, we have lost an insightful leader, a good mentor with magnanimity, and a respectable senior. Mr. Tian was the honorary editor of Virologica Sinica. Therefore, I borrow a little room of your journal to briefly review Academician Tian Bo’s research achievements and academic contributions in the field of virology, remembering his rigorous, pragmatic and innovative spirit, and recalling his gentleness and elegance as a master of the leader and also an elder.
My interest and research work in virology began with a master’s thesis in Academician Tian’s laboratory. After graduation, I was recommended by Academician Tian to go to Germany for a doctorate. After that, I worked at the University of Helsinki, Finland for seven years. And then I was recalled by Academician Tian to work for the country, and at the same time I directed my research from plant virus to medical virus. In 2002, as an assistant and colleague, I assisted him in establishing a modern virology research center in Wuhan University, and preparing to build the Ministry of Education and the National Key Laboratory of Virology. I followed Academician Tian for more than 30 years, and I have gained a lot of influence from his teachings and academics, and therefore have a lot of understanding of his academic thoughts and academic achievements. However, because of the fact that I am very ignorant, I can only carry out a simple review and summary, and may fail to be consummate.
1. Pursuing academic innovation and solving practical problems
The youth of Academician Tian Bo was during the War of Resistance Against Japan and the War of Liberation. He witnessed the huge disaster that the Japanese invasion of China brought the poor and weak to China at that time. And he determined to study hard in order to contrast his country one day. After graduating from university in 1954, he was assigned to the Institute of Microbiology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and began to study plant viruses. One of the major problems facing the country at that time was how to increase crop yields and solve the problem of food and clothing for the people. Therefore, he hoped to contribute to national food production through the study of plant virology. The first scientific question he chose to study was the degradation mechanism of crop varieties and research and development of related virus prevention and control technologies. The research in this field spanned from the 1950s to the 1980s.
At this stage, his main academic contributions are: a) Clarification of the function and mechanism of viruses and temperature in the degradation of potato varieties, and development of potato detoxification (i.e. virus removal) and stock maintenance techniques through stem and tip tissue cultivation. It has been widely used in potato production, resulting in huge social and economic benefits, and the detoxification technology was later applied to other asexual reproduction plants. b) Attenuated N-14 attenuated strain (similar to mammalian attenuated vaccine) was obtained through mutation and screen of Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) by chemical mutagen. Once vaccine the strain plants will obtain anti-viral ability against infection by virulent strains. TMV can infect more than 300 kinds of plants, and the use of the attenuated strain has prevented huge economic losses of various crops in China. c) the first one in the world to propose the idea of using viral satellite RNA to control viruses, and develop a satellite RNA biocontrol agent for cucumber mosaic virus (CMV, which can also infect hundreds of plants), opening up a new way of plant virus control. d) As one of the earliest pioneers in the field of plant genetic engineering in China, he took the lead in applying gene recombination technology and ribozyme-based viral RNA degradation technology to plant virus control, and developed new tobacco and tomato strains with high disease resistance. In the 1950s and 1960s, scientific research conditions of our country were still relatively primitive, making it difficult to conduct systematic biochemical and molecular biology research. However, Mr. Tian was able to base on realistic conditions, face the major national needs, grasp the important scientific and technological issues of the time, carry out long-term and in-depth exploratory research, and thus achieved fruitful results. His scientific feelings of serving the country and the scientific spirit of pragmatic research are always worth remembering.
2. Valiantly standing on the academic frontier and producing first-class results
During his academic career, Mr. Tian has undergone a tremendous transformation from traditional virology to modern virology, from plant virology to medical virology, and at every stage he was able to stand at the forefront of academics, open up new research fields, and promote the development of virology in China. The detoxification technology of stem-tip cultivation and the screening of attenuated strains and virus control technology he established in the 1950s and 1960s were the cutting-edge technologies in this field at that time. The more importantly, the use of satellite RNA preparations to prevent and control viruses proposed by him was a conceptual innovation in the field of international virology. Since the early 1970s, Mr. Tian has focused great attention on the discovery and research of new pathogens and subviral agents with a keen eye and profound scientific thinking. He was the founder of viroid research in China. The new viruses he discovered, such as the burdock dwarf virus, were included in the classic book “The Viroids” by T.O. Diener, and he used the ribozyme function that the virus carries to develop antiviral plants. He was the first to start research on satellite RNA and satellite RNA viruses in China, and prepare them into antiviral ingredients. He was the pioneer of prion research in China, and the first to propose the Chinese translation of prion.
By the early 1990s, China had solved the basic food and clothing problems, and Mr. Tian began to pay attention to the huge problems in the field of medical virology in China, such as the widespread prevalence of hepatitis B, the threats posed by HIV and the existential risks of new emerging viruses. He courageously made major adjustments in the field of research in his sixtieth year, gradually shifted from plant viruses to medical virus research, and continuously achieved innovative academic achievements. For example, for the first time, he isolated a virus-specific peptide that binds to heat shock protein gp96 from liver cancer tissues of patients infected with hepatitis B virus, and discovered the mechanism by which heat shock protein participates in virus antigen processing, providing a theoretical basis for the development of anti-hepatitis B virus drugs; a variety of inhibitors against HIV was developed in his laboratory; after the SARS outbreak, his research team quickly developed a viral membrane fusion inhibitor that effectively inhibited the infection of SARS virus, providing the basic condition for the prevention and control of SARS and social stability under the circumstances at that time. His courage and innovative spirit of daring to constantly challenge the frontiers of science is always worth learning for future generations.
3. Forward-look strategic planning and leading the development of discipline
Academician Tian Bo has participated many times in the formulation of development plan of China’s science and technology and Chinese Academy of Sciences, and has put forward a series of consulting suggestions, which have brought a positive impact on China’s science and technology development. In the field of international virology, he has led the development of multiple virology fields, such as the research of viral satellite RNA as mentioned previously. With regard to the development of virology in China, he has a long-term vision, and has conducted a number of forward-looking plans for research in new areas of virology. For example, the Key Laboratory of Pathogenic Microbiology and Immunization of Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed by him has become an internationally important laboratory for virus structure and virus immunity, improving the international status of China’s virology community significantly. In 2001, at a very old age, he was employed as a special professor of Wuhan University, leading the establishment of Wuhan University Modern Virology Research Center. He proposed a number of important measures to the school at the time, playing a major role in promoting the development of the virus discipline at Wuhan University and having a long-term and profound impact. He proposed that, according to the development trend of the virus discipline and tremendous demands of our country, the research of virus discipline of Wuhan University should shift from the traditional plant virus and insect virus to medical viruses, that because of the continuous emergence of major emerging viruses and their harmful impact on human being, Harm, Wuhan University should establish a third-class biosafety laboratory, or P3 laboratory, and build a modern virology research center based on this, and that the virology discipline of Wuhan University should have an international perspective and ambitious goals, and should focus on modern virology research to effectively and efficiently gather first-class talents and carry out original research on important scientific issues related to human major viral diseases. Under his leadership, Wuhan University established the first P3 laboratory in Chinese universities. Although the laboratory encountered outbreak of SARS virus soon after its establishment, we had some research results quickly. Later, Wuhan University established an animal P3 laboratory and became the first high-level biosafety laboratory in China that obtained CNAS certification. These forward-looking measures have greatly promoted the development of the virology discipline of Wuhan University, and soon after SARS, the Key Laboratory of Virology were established. His grand vision of the development of virology, his deep thinking and forward-looking deployment of virology issues are always worthy of continuous understanding by my generation.
4. Indifference to fame and fortune in life and devotion to academic research
Academician Tian Bo has worked hard for 65 years in the field of virology and has never left the front line of scientific research. In the 1970s and 1980s, Academician Gao Shangyin and the leaders of the Chinese Academy of Sciences repeatedly tried to persuade him to serve as the director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, but he refused. He politely said that he was only suitable for research, not for executive leadership. After working with Wuhan University for more than ten years, I deeply feel that Mr. Tian’s work at Wuhan University is purely out of affection for Wuhan University and love for virology, and is committed to promoting the development of modern virology in China irrespective of any personal interest. He has always regarded his work at Wuhan University as a very meaningful thing in his life. In the early days of the establishment of the Modern Virology Research Center, a biotechnology company in Wuhan, out of respect for Academician Tian and support for its research work, funded 2 million yuan for related research, but Mr. Tian used all of the funding to support research works of several young scholars. As a horizontal cooperation fund, all the personal deductions prescribed by the school was used for subsidies and rewards for graduate students and young teachers. Additionally, he always refused bonuses issued by research centers and colleges. In terms of the use of scientific research funds, his requirements are extremely strict, and every effort is made to save money. He often said that every cent of the funds is earned by the working people in toils, bloods, and sweats, and we must make careful calculations. The school approved 16 million yuan for the construction of a modern virology research center, but with the efforts of Mr. Tian, the construction of the center only used 12 million yuan. As an old man, he often travels between Beijing and Wuhan in economy class. During the research work of the SARS virus, he often ate simple lunches with our young people in order to devote more time to scientific research. When establishing the SARS research topic in the school, he, like a young teacher, prepared the PPT report seriously, and personally made the report statement and argument, showing the rigorous scientific attitude and serious work spirit of an old scientist and inspiring everyone present. His indifference to fame and fortune and scholarly style of devoted research set an example for young scholars.
5. Cultivating students and demonstrating the style of a master
Academician Tian Bo has been trying his best to cultivate, help and support the development of young scholars, and vigorously introduce all kinds of excellent talents. For example, in order to promote the development of the virology field of the Institute of Microbiology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, he promoted the introduction of Dr. Gao Fu from the United Kingdom, and gave all his possible support. Professor Gao Fu is currently an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and an international top virology expert. At Wuhan University, he introduced and supported many young scholars through the construction of the Modern Virology Center and the Key Laboratory of Virology. In addition to the fact that Professor Wu Jianguo and I returned to Wuhan University from abroad as his former students, he also provided development conditions for young talents such as Zhang Linqi and Professor Chen Zhiwei, laying a solid foundation for their return to China for future development. At present, Professor Zhang Linqi and Professor Chen Zhiwei are both well-known experts in the field of HIV. They are respectively the director of the Comprehensive HIV Research Center of Tsinghua University and the director of the AIDS Research Institute of the University of Hong Kong. Later, Mr. Tian actively introduced Professor Jiang Shibo, an internationally renowned expert in the field of antiviral peptide drugs, and provided strong support for his domestic research. At present, Professor Jiang Shibo is a national expert and director of the Institute of Pathogenic Biology of Fudan University. In 2005, Wuhan University introduced Professor Shu Hongbing, an expert in cell biology, as the dean of the School of Life Sciences. Mr. Tian fully supported his research work, and even converted part of the office into a laboratory for his use and offered three graduate students to participate in his research. At the same time, all conditions of the Modern Virology Research Center are required to be open to Professor Shu’s research group. These measures played an important role in the timely start of the newly arrived dean’s research work. Professor Shu Hongbing is currently an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and an internationally renowned natural immunity expert. Mr. Tian was also very concerned about young students. He always had answers to his students once they had questions. And he personally guided the subjects of each graduate student till he was hospitalized. He still asks the graduate student about the progress of the subject and is concerned about the development of young scholars. His style and spirit of master who loves talents and is willing to be ladder for others are always worth remembering.
(Note: Academician Tian Bo is also the doctoral supervisor of Wang Yanyi)
The above are just some of the deeper thoughts that the author has in getting along with Mr. Tian. This article, which was written in a hurry, is not enough to fully reflect Academician Tian’s academic achievements and master style. On the occasion of the 80th birthday of Academician Tian Bo in 2011, Science Press published Anthology of Tian Bo’s Virology, which systematically introduced Academician Tian Bo’s academic career and scientific research achievements. At the same time, Gao Fu and I compiled Virologist: Academician Tian Bo, which described his touching stories of being a man, a teacher and a scholar from different sides by Mr. Tian’s students, colleagues and unit leaders.
Academician Tian Bo rests forever, and his spirit lives forever!
Written in Guangzhou on Dec.16, 2019
The emotional article was written by Guo Deyin in memory of his tutor. I believe most of the information is fact. The article published by Guo Deyin reveals a lot of information that we don’t know in the past:
- The relationship between Tian Bo and several key people
- The key function and important status that Tian Bo played in it
- More importantly, the article is of an implicit expose that reveals the real plan and organizer of the layout of genetic weapons.
- Other information
I will use a table to sort out the relationship:
The following is the explanation of this article. Please prepare your beating heart well.
1. Take a look at the time and place that the article published
Author: Professor Guo Deyin China Virology English Version Dec. 17, 2019
China Virology English Version I F:2.467
Official Account ID of Wechat: virologica
That’s to say, it was published in Dec. 17, 2019. The article was completed in Dec. 16, 2019, which is less then two days after Mr. Tian Bo’s demise in Beijing on the afternoon of Dec. 15, 2019. That is too fast according to the editing speed of a magazine. But an important fact is that Guo Deyin is a favorite student of Tian Bo. He has been following the teacher for more than 30 years. Normally, he should help Tian’s families to prepare for the aftermath, rather than write a recollected article. so, there is only one possibility – this article was already been finished and was chose an appropriate time to publish in the appropriate media. Let’s take a look at December 17, 2019. What else happened besides the demise of Mr. Tian Bo?
That’s to say, the Wuhan epidemic has already occurred on December 17, 2019 or earlier. The medical treatment of exact infected person was on December 27, which is 10 days later. The afterwards experience of infected people shows that many people have already been infected on December 17, 2019. So, the publication date of the article by Guo Deyin, the beginning of Wuhan epidemic, and the date of demise of Mr. Tian Bo are almost simultaneous.
Let’s find out when did Miles Guo unravel Guo Deyin. It was Feb. 4, 2020, which was after the outbreak of Wuhan pandemic in China.
This is a war, Miles Guo said, PLA acknowledged that the virus was man-made.
I believe that the article written by Guo Deyin that was full of memory is carefully designed for each sentence. So, what is this article for? This article is not published in the public but only published in professional journals. But it is aimed at professional or specialized people. I think it is a kind of shouting, or conveying a important message, that is to tell everyone who is in the article that Mr. Tian Bo has passed away, and in the following pandemic, all shut up.
So, what is the significance of the demise of Tian Bo at this juncture point? Why is there always the demise of scientists at important time? The last one is Zhao Yongfang, now Tian Bo. DT the Digger is never the creator of conspiracy theory, but the truth dug out is always brutal.
So, DT regards this article written by Guo Deyin as a nuke-level expose, because the article exposes the true organization.
OK. Take a look at the first story of two stories before we continue digging the article.
First story: the story of two laboratories
The first story is about “the two Wuhan labs under the same mask” In the previous dig essay, we have unveiled some key information, and proved P3 laboratory safety management framework: the relationship among the competent unit, laboratory managers, academic committees, and trusteeship units. Let’s interpret the academic committee and management committee of these two laboratories. Now the academic committee.
Let me first explain that this form would not be so important without Guo Deyin’s article. If we, according to Guo Deyin’s account, learned Tian Bo ’s importance to these two laboratories in Wuhan, then we can understand that this form is extremely important and reveals many secrets of the development of the new coronavirus. Of course, a lot of information needs to be dug by DT through this form to prove it. However, the fact is that before Miles Guo unraveled his real name (including his role in this plague or biochemical war), he had eagerly released the prepared commemorative article for shouting. But the article, along with the list published on the Wuhan university’s website, inadvertently reveals a big secret, which is the reason how did this viral weapon come into being and when did it happen? To whom is the weapon finally handed over? Of course, the secrets revealed by Guo Deyin’s article are not only these, we will continue to reveal them.
Well, go straight to the topic, what does the above form imply? The core is the change and the time of the change.
Let’s recall the disclosure of the safety management system of the National Key Laboratory of the Chinese Communist Party in the previous article. The focus is not on whether leakage can occur, but on the CCP’s absolute safety control of the National Key Laboratory. That means that the gun must be secure and kept firmly in hands. There should be no accidents. If you understand this point, you will know the meaning and profound connotation of this structure, so the truth hidden in this form can be seen clearly.
Briefly speaking, the reason why the academic committee is important is that it manages the money. Who will get the money and what is the money for are depended on the academic committee. In addition, the evaluation of scientific research results after completing the scientific research work and the research honor that those researchers care about most are also depended on the committee. That’s to say, you are working for it, but whether you will get the salary or bonus is up to them. However, they are not the boss. The boss is the CCP, they are only responsible for the technology. Because the boss wants to do the technical work without knowing the know-how, they are needed. In other words, the academic committee decides not only the allocation of the national full-funded special funds among the research groups in the national key laboratory, and also the research direction of each research group, and finally evaluated the research results and honors of the research group.
If you understand this, you will see at least three pieces of truth from the changes of the members of an academic committee:
- A. Estimation of the extent of importance that CCP attaches and the fund
- B. the research direction and the major subject direction of the laboratory
- C. projection of the progress of the research
- D. Others
Let ’s talk about A first. As you can see from the table above, the first session in 2005-2006 of this academic committee was composed of 6 academicians, 6 professors, and 4 researchers; the second session in 2011-2016 was 8 academicians, 5 professors and 4 researchers; the third session in 2017-2022 consists of 6 academicians, 5 professors, and 2 researchers. The importance of the laboratory research work can be seen from the number of academicians. The funds allocated by the CCP can be imagined.
Now B, from Guo Deyin’s statement, we can know that the laboratory chaired by Tian Bo is very important to the CCP, and many of the people related to Teacher Tian Bo are also associated with this committee, including Shu Hongbing, Wu Jianguo, and Hu Zhihong (Note: Here is not Chen Xinwen). This aspect explains that academician Tian Bo’s academic development control of this laboratory is based on virus research. Well, it can be seen from the titles of academic committee personnel that the core is virus research, because academicians direct the whole project and are academic authority, and they don’t work. Professors have to teach and may also work if they want. Therefore, the real people who do the major work are researchers. So, the chairman of the first committee was a student of Teacher Tian Bo, Wu Jianguo. The committee must include Hu Zhihong, the main force of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Hu should also be a student of Tian Bo. Although Shu Hongbing and Teacher Tian Bo are not related to teacher-student, the relationship between them is also unusual (We can see it from the form disclosed by Guo Deyin earlier). His wife, Wang Yanyi, is a doctoral student of Mr. Tian Bo. It can be said that in the previous two academic committees, the research direction was firmly focused on the virus circle, so why did other academicians and scholars enter the academic committee? Outwardly, academicians and experts in academic committees are well-known people and scholars in this field, but the presence of Rao Zihe here is something else. The actual situation is that, as we disclosed in the previous article, this is the real core team for the development of viral weapons. Academician Tian Bo is performing a top-secret national mission or mission. Tian Bo ’s contribution even surpassed the older generation of scientists such as Qian Xuesen, and eventually allowed CCP to grasp the ultimate biochemical weapon. Therefore, the people who appeared in the previous two sessions were related to this task. It is not surprising that military representatives appeared. I predict that there will be more people who cannot appear in the academic committee. These people decide the research direction and cooperate to assist the action on the basis of the research progress of these two laboratories in Wuhan. Because this is not an individual behavior, but an organizational behavior. It is a collective behavior of the CCP on behalf of the whole country, and CCP needs them to collectively assume obligations and responsibilities.
Now C – Projection the progress of the research. Yes, it can be known from the changes in the personnel of the first, second, and third sessions of the committee. The first is the initial stage of the research, and the second is increased and adjusted by so many academicians (Note that the researcher did not adjust. Because the first stage of the research had achieved certain results or encountered a bottleneck, only then will it increase academic strength.) The major personnel replacement and the departure of key people of the third session of the committee should have two reasons; one is that the research work in 2016 has been basically completed, the other is that the construction work of the Wuhan P4 laboratory is next to completion. The task of this committee has basically been completed successfully. The main core forces have completed the strategic transfer and returned to normal laboratory research work.
Let ’s talk about D now. From the conclusions of the above and the form, we can be more certain that, although the swine fever in 2016 was not the same as the new coronavirus, both belong to coronavirus, and it is a coronavirus field test of biochemical weapons. It can be inferred that the swine fever coronavirus was produced in these two P3 laboratories in Wuhan, most likely the Shi Zhengli’s laboratory or Guo Deyin’s laboratory in Wuhan University. According to Miles Guo’s expose information, the production date was before the swine fever in October 2016. The swine fever virus is only a small part of the coronavirus biochemical weapon program. Behind it are hidden more research and plans of the coronavirus biochemical weapon, including the plan related to this new coronavirus. If this is the case, Academician Rao Zi, as deputy directors, should know the truth, and the laboratory of the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is led by him, is also engaged in related research work, so that the accidental death of Zhao Yongfang becomes logical after she accidentally knew the truth of the research work in the laboratory.
DT the Digger has revealed this list in the first season’s expose, and it tends to be interpreted as the result of political struggle, the struggle between the Jiang faction and the Xi faction, the Wang faction and the Jiang faction. Now it can be confirmed that CCP did it intentionally. The reason why now we can confirm is that, during the dig at that time, the key article written by Guo Deyin was noticed but the accidental death of Zhao Yongfang wasn’t, there were still many doubts to be dealt with.
The hype of the overseas propaganda of CCP proved the judgment of the DT the Digger. They tried to cover up the truth and suggested the personnel changes as a result of the political struggle, including Major General Chen Wei taking over the P4 laboratory.
In fact, in this form, the person who took over the P4 laboratory has already appeared, because this organization must be deeply involved in the virus development process, which is laid out from the beginning. On the day that the P4 will be built, this organization will take over the underground part of the P4 laboratory and the newly developed coronavirus, and will be ordered to mass-produce the virus in the P4 laboratory. At the same time, the over ground part of the P4 laboratory was taken over by the research force of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which has completed the strategic transfer. It can be judged that it is the military force dominated by the Chinese Academy of Military Medical Sciences that takes over the P4 laboratory. The unit in charge is nominally the General Staff, in fact the Central Military Commission, and Major General Chen Wei is an academician of this Academy of Sciences. Therefore, the purpose of the Wuhan trip of Major General Chen Wei was not to take over the P4 laboratory in Wuhan. Otherwise, Guo Deyin, Shu Hongbing, Gao Fu, Wu Jianguo, and Hu Zhihong would not be as safe as they are now. The weird thing is that have you ever heard that people on this list have been infected with CCP virus?
Before continuing to tell this story, let us take a look at what Guo Deyin said: “In 2005, Wuhan University introduced Professor Shu Hongbing, an expert in cell biology, as the dean of the School of Life Sciences. Mr. Tian fully supported his research and even converted part of the office into a laboratory for his use and offered three graduate students to participate in his research. At the same time, all conditions of the Modern Virology Research Center are required to be open to Professor Shu’s research group.” Who are the three graduate students offered by Tian Bo? I am surprised if there is no special meaning, Guo Deyin will not remember so deeply!
One of the graduate students of Tian Bo is Xiao Gengfu, who is currently working at the Wuhan Virus Research Institute, and the other is Hu Zhihong, who is also currently working at the Wuhan Virus Research Institute. The other is Wang Yanyi. She studied at Wuhan University from September 2007 to June 2010 and obtained her doctorate. From December 2015, she served as the deputy director of Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. She has served as director since October 2018. That is to say, one of the graduate students who provided Shu Hongbing with assistance was his wife at that time, event that shows the importance of Shu Hongbing’s new laboratory work. Regarding this sentence, my understanding is that Guo Deyin announced, “Everyone pays attention! The developer of the virus released later is Shu Hongbing and his family, not me Guo Deyin, hehe, this is evidence.”
Before telling the second story, we first list some materials to confirm the first story told.
List of management team of National Key Laboratory of Virology:
This list DT just revealed has also presented in season 1 and the previous article. The key is to look at the change of characters – the management team is the actual manager of these two laboratories whose main job is to manage specific research work and participate in research.
The list of 2005-2016 is the main force of research. Of course, Guo Deyin, Shu Hongbing, Wu Jianguo, Xiao Gengfu and Hu Zhihong will inevitably appear here. The management team manages two laboratories, on the one hand, Wuhan University, on the other hand, The Wuhan Institute of Virus Research. In regards of which one takes the lead, we can take a hint at the director and the deputy director. It is the laboratory of Wuhan University that ought to take the lead. That is, Wu Jianguo, Shu Hongbing and Guo Deyin are the leaders.
The change of the management team in 2016 is interpreted by many people that Jiang faction replaced Wang faction or other factions to take over the Wuhan virus laboratory. This is not a fact. The fact is that this team has transferred a strategic arrangement after completing the task of the organization.
That is to say, these key figures were all withdrawn from the management position of the “National Key Laboratory of Virology” at the end of 2016. Among them, Chen Xinwen and Hu Zhihong continued to work at the Wuhan Institute of Virology; Shu Hongbing and Wu Jianguo continued to teach at Wuhan University; Shu Hongbing continued management at Wuhan University; Guo Deyin and Chen Xinwen were promoted one after another. However, DT will ask, what is the purpose of the arrangement of Wang Yanyi, who is the wife of Shu Hongbing and proud disciple of Tian Bo, to succeed Chen Xinwen as the director of Wuhan Institute of Virology in October 2018? what is the purpose of the transfer of so many top scientists? The answer is obvious. On the one hand, the story of these two laboratories has been completed. To continue writing a story, the other purpose is that the weapon must be firmly in control!
Then, Wu Jianguo, a student of Academician Tian Bo. Take a look at his resume.
- Bachelor’s degree in microbiology from Wuhan University in 1982.
- Master’s degree in virology from Wuhan University in 1985.
- A doctorate in biochemistry from the University of Idaho in 1992.
- A postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University from 1993 to 1996.
He has successively worked at the academician Tian Bo laboratory of Institute of Microbiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences as replacing graduate student, the academician Miller laboratory of the University of Georgia as visiting researcher, the Professor Newton laboratory of the American Academy of Microbiology at Princeton University as researcher, the Doramas Institute as senior researcher, the US Sept Pharmaceuticals as consultant, and the Molecular Biology Laboratory of the Naval Health Research Center of the US Department of Defense as Director.
This low-key scientist like his teacher has a complicated American biomedical research experience. And he is a specially appointed professor of Changjiang Scholars by the Ministry of Education in 1999. He will appear in a later article.
Finally, other information implied in Guo Deyin’s article can be interpreted. This article by Guo Deyin is encrypted. He believes that someone in the distance must be able to discover and decrypt this encrypted article. The name of the person in the article is not casually presented, and the key person may not be presented, such as Mr. Tian Bo ’s three graduate students, because this is a mission of organization. If the article is not well written, they may be murdered by deliberately over-masturbating. There are still several photos in this article that were left out by DT the Digger, but one of the photos is shown here. Among the many photos that record the experiences with Mr. Tian Bo, Guo Deyin chose such a photo and noted: Visiting Tian Bo in the hospital. That’s meaningful. Let’s take a look at this photo: an old man who was seriously ill and about to die.
Here are some news reports about the demise of Mr. Tian Bo.
Guo Deyin does not appear on this list because he is not yet an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and is underqualified.
Shortly after Tian Bo’s death, coronavirus broke out in Wuhan. Wuhan, where is located Wuhan Institute of Virology that is in the charge of the beloved student of the father of Chinese virus research, was to sink into the raging of new coronavirus.
Well, the first story comes to an end, because the new management team of the P3 laboratory of Wuhan University and the new director are no longer important. Let us start the second story.
Before we start, let’s review some materials related to the first story.
The fourth meeting of the third academic committee of the National Key Laboratory of Virology was successfully held

The second story about two labs
The second story about two labs began with SARS in 2003. First of all, we excerpt some materials.
Academician Lu Yongxiang instructed the Chinese Academy of Sciences to concentrate strength on further fighting against SARS
Renovate relevant laboratories and start basic research work on virus prevention. The Institute originally only studied viruses other than those of humans. In the face of SARS viruses, it urgently transformed and built a P3 laboratory, launched a P4 laboratory transformation plan, introduced live viruses for experiments, and made long-term hard work and preparation for understanding and preventing SARS.
The Beijing Institute of Genomics has collaborated with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences to complete the gene sequencing of four groups of SARS viruses. The sequencing results have found mutation behaviors. Samples are being added to find the law of virus mutations. Two virus detection methods, enzyme-linked kit and PCR antigen test, were urgently developed to achieve early diagnosis and confirmation, and can be supplied in batches soon. Beijing Genomics Research Institute, Institute of Microbiology and Shanghai Institute of Life Sciences are stepping up the development of vaccines and effective drugs. The Shanghai Institute of Organic Medicine, the Institute of Medicine and the Kunming Institute of Animal Science searched for antiviral drugs based on the screening of hundreds of existing compound drugs. In addition, some long-term research work aimed at developing effective drugs has also been initiated. Third, renovate relevant laboratories and start basic research work on virus prevention. The Institute originally only studied viruses other than those of humans. In the face of SARS viruses, it urgently transformed and built a P3 laboratory, launched a P4 laboratory transformation plan, introduced live viruses for experiments, and made long-term hard work and preparation for understanding and preventing SARS. At the same time, the Kunming Institute of Zoology and the Shanghai Research Institute, together with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, with the support of the General Logistics Department of the PLA, organized the establishment of a higher animal research center to use primates for virologic experiments. The Institute of Animal funds themselves and conducts research on finding the source of pathogens in Guangdong.
In this report, there are several key messages.
1. “The Beijing Institute of Genomics has collaborated with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences to complete the gene sequencing of four groups of SARS viruses. The sequencing results have found mutation behaviors. Samples are being added to find the law of virus mutations.” Note that this shows that they sampled the strains of SARS virus and completed the genetic sequencing of 4 groups of SARS virus, and they still increased samples. The SARS coronavirus sampling task should be the work of the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, and the sequencing should be the work of the Beijing Genomics Institute.
2. “The Shanghai Institute of Organic Medicine, the Institute of Medicine and the Kunming Institute of Animal Science searched for antiviral drugs based on the screening of hundreds of existing compound drugs.” Ostensibly, these three units are responsible for drug screening for antiviral drugs. In fact, no drugs have been found to treat SARS, so their real purpose is to do some experiments. Therefore, some long-term research work aimed at developing effective drugs has also been initiated. The most important thing is the following paragraph – Kunming Institute of Zoology and Shanghai Research Institute together with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, with the support of the General Logistics Department of the PLA, organized the establishment of a higher animal research center to use primates for virologic experiments. Here comes again the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, and with the support of the General Logistics Department of the PLA, a higher animal research center was established in Kunming, using primates to conduct virologic experiments. That means to establish the world ’s largest monkey virus experimental base in Kunming. This base is a military restricted area and a confidential unit. At that time, virologic experiments of SARS coronavirus on live monkeys had been conducted.
3. “The Institute of Animal funds themselves and conducts research on finding the source of pathogens in Guangdong.” This animal institute does not refer to the Kunming Animal Institute, but is an abbreviation within the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. This unit is responsible for finding the mother of the virus, that is, to find the source of the virus. The aim is to prove that the virus originates from nature. This institute will be mentioned later.
4. “Renovate relevant laboratories and start basic research work on virus prevention. The Institute originally only studied viruses other than those of humans. In the face of SARS viruses, it urgently transformed and built a P3 laboratory, launched a P4 laboratory transformation plan, introduced live viruses for experiments, and made long-term hard work and preparation for understanding and preventing SARS.” The institute here refers to the Wuhan Institute of Virology of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Here, the P4 laboratory appeared for the first time. The Wuhan Institute urgently built the P3 laboratory, launched the P4 laboratory transformation plan, and introduced live viruses for experiments. Pay attention to this sentence. In other words, the introduction of live viruses means that the source and collection of live viruses and the search for the host are not its job. The live virus come from the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, and the P4 laboratory prepared for the condition for doing long-term hard work to understand and prevent SARS virus.
Here is the list of allocation of SARS virus research in the above units.
In other words, during SARS as early as in 2003, the Wuhan Institute of Virology established a P3 laboratory and started the transformation plan of the P4 laboratory on the basis of it. In the previous article, we know that it is not necessary to use a P4 lab to study SARS coronavirus. That the Wuhan Institute of Virology initiated the plan to transform P4 laboratory is obviously not to study coronavirus. It is not easy to understand for people who does not understand biological virus research. So, everything becomes reasonable and logical because of SARS epidemic. If it were not for scientists to help us interpret some basic knowledge and concepts, perhaps we will never understand this.
The second story is the story of two laboratories, one P3 laboratory and the other P4 laboratory.
The first scene in the beginning of the story is that a famous female scientist did a job that was not her division of labor – to find the source of the coronavirus. According to the division of labor, this work is the responsibility of the Institute of Zoology of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Let’s take a look at all the reports that we can find out about the source of coronavirus.
1. Source of SARS virus released on September 29, 2005
Chinese scientists found that bats carry SARS-like viruses — scientists of Chinese Academy of Sciences, collaborated with foreign experts, made new breakthroughs in the study of SARS virus animal traceability
The results of a joint study conducted mainly by scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences showed that bats carry SARS-like viruses. The results of this study were published in Science on September 29, 2005.
As we all know, the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak affected 26 countries and regions, causing more than 8,000 infections and 774 deaths. A new coronavirus was identified as the pathogen of SARS. In the process of animal traceability of SARS virus, early research results proved that civet cat may be the natural host of SARS virus.
A joint research team composed of Shi Zhengli, a researcher at the Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Zhang Shuyi, a researcher at the Institute of Zoology, and other scientists paid attention to the research: In recent years, bats have been proven to be natural hosts of some important animal-borne infectious disease virus pathogens (both humans and animals can be infected), and these virus-infected bats basically have no clinical symptoms. Therefore, the joint research team focused on the tracing of SARS virus in bats.
Since March 2004, the joint research team has collected serum, oral swab and anal swab samples of 408 bats from 3 families, 6 genera and 9 species in four regions: Guangxi, Guangdong, Hubei and Tianjin. The SARS virus antibodies and genes were simultaneously tested in the National Key Laboratory of Virology in Wuhan and the Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) in Geelong, Australia. As a result, SARS virus antibodies and genes were found in 4 species of Rhinolophus sinicus genera, among which Big-eared horseshoe bat showed over 70% of antibody positive rate. Gene sequence analysis showed that the genome sequence homology of bat SARS virus and human SARS virus reached 92%. However, the difference between the two plays a key role in whether the bat SARS virus can spread across species, that is to say, the SARS virus detected by scientists in bats will not directly infect humans.
This paper is the first paper to look for coronavirus in bats after SARS outbreak. It is very simple. First catching bats, then using molecular biology to detect SARS-like viruses. As a result, bats are a natural biological and chemical weapons arsenal. However, Shi Zhengli is also the first author of this paper. Generally speaking, the first author of a paper is the one who do the work, and the following author is the planner and boss. This paper made Shi Zhengli unstoppable and started her career as an independent researcher in the development of biochemical weapons at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
2 Source of SARS virus
By the time this paper was published, Shi Zhengli had already been promoted to a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In the thesis, the research team led by Shi Zhengli claimed that the virus that can infect human naturally was discovered in bats. However, we have already analyzed in the previous article that the so-called bat virus isolated by Shi Zhengli shows a characteristic of the recombination of SARS virus and bat virus. Therefore, we infer that the virus was man-made by Shi Zhengli in the laboratory, and the purpose that Shi Zhengli said it was from a natural virus in bats is to wash away the biological and chemical weapons and pave the way for the future use.
3 Sources of swine fever virus in 2016. Published in 2018
Regarding the three viruses discovered and analyzed by the team of Shi Zhengli, let us make a brief table.
The coronavirus that caused swine fever in 2016 is a virus very similar to the coronavirus HKU2 found in bats in the laboratory of Yuan Guoyong of the University of Hong Kong. In this paper,
Research by Shi Zhengli and collaborators showed that the overall similarity of the swine fever coronavirus and Yuan Guoyong team’s coronavirus HKU2 found in bats reached 95%. The similarity of S protein is 86%. This similarity makes people suspect that the 2016 swine fever virus was artificially modified or recombined from coronavirus HKU2 of 2007. Although the receptor used by the swine fever coronavirus to invade cells is unclear, the swine fever virus is likely to be the result of the S protein modification or artificial recombination through forward genetics. The whole swine fever virus is an animal experiment of a coronavirus outbreak.
In general, it is difficult to trace the source of natural virus. But Shi Zhengli claimed in the article that he found a coronavirus with a 98% similarity to the swine fever virus in the bats in the cave next to the swine fever outbreak area. Why is it so coincident every time, no matter what coronavirus breaks out, Shi Zhengli can find a very similar virus on the bat and publish an article in the international top scientific magazine Nature. This is the case for swine fever virus, so is the CCP virus. How can other scientists not encounter such a good thing? Therefore, bats are an omnipotent reason for the CCP’s wash-away of biological and chemical weapons. No matter what virus is tested, as long as another paper is published saying that similar viruses are found in nearby bats, the CCP’s biological and chemical weapons can be washed away.
Through Shi Zhengli’s several trips to discover viruses, we should know what the job of two laboratories of Wuhan Institute of Virology are.
Conclusion: The P3 laboratory develops viruses, and the P4 laboratory is a manufacturer producing viral weapons and can develop higher-level virus weapons.
Let’s continue to read some information about this story.

From the above information, we know that the address of the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory of Chinese Academy of Sciences of Wuhan Institute of Virology, also Wuhan P4 Lab, is located in Zhengdian, and the Party Branch of Zhengdian Lab of Wuhan Institute of Virology is responsible for the construction work.
- The construction of the laboratory started in July 2003.
- Completed on January 31, 2015.
- On February 24, 2017, after more than a year of trial operation, the certification was obtained, that is to say, the date of the trial operation was in early 2016.
- Officially launched in January 2018.
- Passed the process acceptance on May 16, 2018.
- Accepted on November 31, 2018.
Above all, Wuhan P4 Lab has been called Zhengdian Lab during the construction process, and the person in charge is Yuan Zhiming, currently the party secretary and deputy director of Wuhan Institute of Virology. He used to be the former director of Zhengdian Laboratory.
At the end of 2015, Zhengdian Lab publicly released recruitment notices.
The following deeds published on the Chinese Academy of Sciences website give us more information on P4 experiment management.
The Party Branch of Zhengdian Laboratory: Keep in mind the responsibilities, stick to the mission, and be a pioneer in the field of high-level biosecurity.
Release time: Nov. 8, 2018 Source: Wuhan Institute of Virology
The Party branch of the Zhengdian Laboratory of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences is the main force in the construction of the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory (hereinafter referred to as “Wuhan P4 Laboratory”) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory currently has 16 party members, accounting for 57% of the total number of laboratory construction teams. In the construction team of Zhengdian Laboratory, there are 7 deputy senior and above personnel, all of whom are members of the Communist Party of China. For many years, under the leadership of the Party Committee of the Institute, the party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory, which is led by ideological construction, combined the particularity of the work undertaken, promoted the construction of the laboratory with “four best efforts”, and effectively played the role of battle fortress in the construction of Wuhan P4 laboratory.
1. Leading by thoughts and using ideals and beliefs to unite
In 2003, SARS raged. The country required Wuhan Institute of Virology to undertake the task of building a Wuhan P4 laboratory from a strategic perspective. At that time, domestic scientists knew little about this laboratory of the highest level of biosecurity. Wuhan Institute of Virology was in a “three Nos” situation: no equipment and technical standards, no design and construction team, no Ph.D. Facing the needs of the country, we had the courage to undertake the construction tasks of the P4 laboratory, and immediately set up the construction team of the Zhengdian laboratory. Facing the endless unknown, the challenges can be imagined.
Ideals and beliefs are the spiritual calcium, which is the source of motivation to carry out scientific research. The party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory played a leading role in thinking, adhered to the “three sessions and one lesson” system, and took the “two studies and one do” learning and educational activities as the carrier to earnestly study the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Party and of important speeches of the general secretary Xi Jinping when he inspected our institute, ideologically guiding party members to establish the ideal and belief of innovating technology, serving the country, and benefiting the people. Especially in 2017, the Party Branch and Subcommittee of Zhengdian Laboratory carefully planned and organized the activity of Casting the Ideal into Reality-My Position in the Team, focusing on the ideals and beliefs of each party member. In this activity, the party branch selected three party members of different ages, in the form of looking back and going forward, to guide young party members to think from a farther perspective and a higher angle to adhere to ideal and belief and practice a life without regret. At the same time, let each party member clearly understand the lofty significance of their positions, and realize that ordinary positions can also do extraordinary work, thereby further inspiring the work enthusiasm of party members and comrades. In actual work, comrades of party members have played a more active role and contributed to the development of multiple work links such as technological innovation, management innovation, and detail improvement. This makes the operation and maintenance of facilities more efficient, more stable, and more constructive for the operation and management of laboratories.
At the same time, the party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory attaches great importance to team capacity building, and expands meetings through branches to discuss the project implementation and technical issues. On this platform, you can talk about the experience in equipment management or the puzzles you encounter. Through expressing your opinions, sharing your experiences, and discussing together, you can solve problems, accumulate experience, improve capabilities, and effectively promote the construction and operation of the laboratory.
2. Undertaking the mission and playing the exemplary role of party members as pioneers
In the process of building the Wuhan P4 laboratory, the construction team of the Zhengdian laboratory experienced one challenge after another, including imperfect construction and design standards, insufficient investment estimates, long construction cycles, large changes in the policy environment, and updated national standards. Song Donglin, deputy director of Wuhan P4 Laboratory and party member of Zhengdian Laboratory, is the core backbone of the biosafety system. After one year of trial operation of the P4 laboratory, Song Donglin led his team to write the complete management system documents of 500,000 words, including the Biosafety Management Manual, procedure documents, Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), record forms and risk assessment reports, providing a solid guarantee for the safe and efficient operation of the laboratory. Tong Xiao, Secretary of the Party Branch of Zhengdian Laboratory, is the technical person in charge of the construction of Wuhan P4 Laboratory and the chief commander of the project. 2015 was the year of his son’s college entrance examination and the key debugging period of the laboratory. In order to put the laboratory into use as soon as possible, he devoted himself to the exploration of debugging problems without taking into account the needs of his family. “Personal difficulties can always find a way to overcome, but the delay of the laboratory’s debugging progress will cause losses to the research institute and adversely affect scientists,” he said.
3. Pioneering and innovating, promoting the voyage of the aircraft carrier of P4 laboratory with four best efforts
The team of Zhengdian Laboratory has increased from the 3 people in the beginning to 28 people. Droves of outstanding young talents have continuously joined this large family, and the “diligence, dedication, due diligence and responsibility” proposed by the party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory has become a magic weapon for the team to achieve professional. Make every effort to improve professional ability, work level, efficiency effect; try to face technical problems, coordinate and solve all kinds of difficulties; do AB post work diligently and become a master in the professional field; invest in the work with the sense of responsibility of the owner. Since China lacks of experience in construction and maintenance of P4 laboratories, the laboratory mainly introduces design and key equipment through Sino-French cooperation. After digestion, absorption and re-innovation, the laboratory construction meets domestic and international standards, the French design concept, and construction requirements of China, etc. For example, in terms of the enclosure structure in the core area of the laboratory, the construction team has repeatedly tested and replaced the traditional glue sealing method with advanced laser welding, which has better airtightness and durability. The P4 team owns the independent intellectual property rights of the technology. Also, self-designed automatic control mathematical model achieves a more stable differential pressure control effect.
In January 2017, Wuhan P4 Laboratory obtained the laboratory accreditation qualification granted by the National Accreditation Commission. In August of the same year, it obtained the National Health and Planning Commission’s activity license and became China’s first P4 laboratory officially to put into operation, marking China’s the ability and conditions of high-level pathogenic microorganism experimental activities. As an important part of the national high-level biosecurity laboratory system, the laboratory will become an important part of China’s public health defense system and a technical platform for infectious disease prevention and control research at home and abroad. At present, the Zhengdian laboratory team is mainly dedicated to the operation and maintenance of the laboratory, providing irreplaceable conditions and system services for scientists to carry out biosafety research.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that P4 laboratory construction is very important for China’s public health. The Wuhan Institute of Virology will focus on the “first action” plan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, rely on the Wuhan P4 laboratory cluster platform, and combine the advantages of the inside and outside of the hospital, according to the goal and mechanism of biological safety the National Laboratory, to build a large scientific research center of biosecurity of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The team of Zhengdian Lab has only 28 people.
Song Donglin, deputy director of Wuhan P4 Laboratory and party member of Zhengdian Laboratory, is the core backbone of the biosecurity system.
Tong Xiao, Secretary of the Party Branch of Zhengdian Laboratory, is the technical person in charge of the construction of Wuhan P4 Laboratory and the chief commander of the project.
The party branch of Zhengdian Laboratory currently has 16 party members, accounting for 57% of the total number of laboratory construction teams. In the Zhengdian laboratory construction team, there are 7 deputy senior and above personnel, all of whom are members of the Communist Party of China.
Let’s try to see if we can dig out the 16 party members in the Zhengdian laboratory.

Guan Wuxiang, Sun Xiulian, Li Liping, Xiao Gengfu, He Changcai, Cui Zongqiang, Tong Xiao
The people in this list are the lineal members of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, or the guardians of security and politics. What can be determined here is that Tong Xiao is the head of the Party branch of the Zhengdian laboratory, which is the P4 laboratory. Xiao Gengfu, one of Tian Bo ’s students, was the secretary of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. At the same time, Wang Yanyi, another student of Tian Bo, was the director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Through the above dig, we have understood the stories of the two laboratories of Wuhan Virus Research Institute. The main body of the virus research laboratory or the body that the Wuhan Institute of Virology can use is the building built on April 12, 2004 that mentioned in the dig materials above – the Xiaohongshan New Park of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, namely, the P3 laboratory, which is the National Key Laboratory of Virology. But the Zhengdian’s laboratory building, where only 28 people can enter, is a real P4 laboratory.
According to the expose of Mr. Miles Guo, there is a real P4 laboratory in the underground of the P4 laboratory building, so can these 28 people enter the underground? Who is the user of the underground laboratory?
The answer is for sure that those 28 people cannot enter the underground part. They are only the guardians or cover-ups of the underground part. In fact, the truth is not difficult to find, as long as the United States goes to check the equipment supply list of the supply company, and then check the records of major equipment and facilities of the Wuhan Institute of Virology against the list. The user in the underground is an army team composed of the Military Medical Academy of PLA. The Military Medical Academy is affiliated to the General Logistics Department of PLA. In 2016, the General Logistics Department of PLA was abolished and the Logistics Support Department of the Central Military Commission was established. The Military Medical Academy was transferred to the Logistics Support Department of the Central Military Commission but was still ranked as Corps Commander-level, which is the highest ranking in the PLA. The Logistics Support Department of the Central Military Commission, is the first-level functional department of the Central Military Commission, deputy theater level, and is responsible for the logistics support of the entire military.
Chen Wei (February 1966-), a native of Lanxi, Zhejiang, a preventive medical scientist and a biological defense expert of the People’s Republic of China, a major general of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, and an academician of China Engineering Academy, and delegate of the 12th National People’s Congress and members of the 13th CPPCC National Committee. She has long been engaged in research on biohazard prevention and control, and is particularly committed to the research and development of new vaccines and therapeutic drugs for highly pathogenic microorganisms. She once rendered meritorious contributions of 2nd and 3rd grade in the PLA, each twice.
From 2001 to 2004, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Bioengineering, Academy of Military Medical Sciences. She was unusually promoted to a researcher (senior professional title) in 2002 and became a doctoral supervisor in 2003. In 2012, she was promoted from the deputy director of the Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology to the Director of the Institute of Bioengineering. In July 2015, she was promoted to the rank of major general of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. In 2019, she was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. She was a representative of the 12th National People’s Congress and a member of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
The most important thing is that Chen Wei is the core person of the genotype Ebola virus vaccine research and development team in 2014. However, the scientist of the Chinese Academy of Sciences who has made outstanding contributions in the field of Ebola virus is Academician Gao Fu, who serves for the Institute of Microbiology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the place where his promoter and introducer Academician Tian Bo also served. And the Ebola virus used by Chen Wei to study the vaccine lies quietly in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. So, here comes a question. Where is the P4 laboratory that Major General Chen Wei used to study the Ebola virus? Because in 2014, the P4 Laboratory in Zhengdian has not yet been completed. DT will leave it to readers to dig and brainstorm.
It is obvious that the key to the door of the P4 laboratory is in the hands of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.
Let the two stories wind down here. Next part to be continued.
