Researcher Pleaded Guilty to Conspiring to Steal Scientific Trade Secrets from Ohio Children’s Hospital to Sell in China

研究人员对密谋窃取俄亥俄州儿童医院的医学商业机密并在中国销售的行为表示认罪

Crime is Another Example of Economic Malfeasance Related to the Peoples Republic of China Accommodating Theft of Commercial Products They Cannot Field Organically

此犯罪是另一个与中华人民共和国有关的经济不法行为的例子,纵容偷窃他们不能自主研发的商业产品

Former Ohio woman Li Chen, 46, pleaded guilty today via video conference in U.S. District Court today to conspiring to steal scientific trade secrets and conspiring to commit wire fraud concerning the research, identification and treatment of a range of pediatric medical conditions.

46岁的前居住在俄亥俄州的女子陈莉(音译,Li Chen)今天在美国地方法院通过视频会议认罪,她承认密谋窃取医学商业机密,并密谋对一系列儿科疾病的研究、鉴定和治疗实施电讯欺诈。

“Once again we see the People’s Republic of China (PRC) facilitating the theft of our nation’s ingenuity and hard work as part of their quest to rob, replicate and replace any product they don’t have the ability to develop themselves,” said John C. Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “Far from being an isolated incident, we see the PRC implicated in around 60 percent of all trade secret theft cases. This continued economic belligerence runs contrary to the values and norms that facilitate the success of our industries and countering it remains among our highest priorities.”

负责国家安全的助理司法部长约翰·C·德默尔斯表示:“我们再次看到中共国(PRC)为窃取我们国家的知识财富和工作成果提供了便利,抢夺、复制和取代任何他们没有能力自己开发的产品,这是他们谋求的一部分”,“这绝非个别事件,在所有窃取商业秘密的案件中,约有60%的案件涉及中国。这种持续的经济交锋与促进我们产业成功的价值观和规范背道而驰,打击这种行为仍是我们的最优先事项之一”。

“Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Research Institute took reasonable measures to protect its cutting-edge intellectual property and trade secrets regarding exosomes, and I commend the cooperation of Nationwide Children’s throughout this investigation,” U.S. Attorney David M. DeVillers said. “Chen betrayed her employer of 10 years by stealing trade secrets from this American institution and transferring them to China after receiving payments from the Chinese government.”

美国检察官戴维·M·德维尔勒斯表示:“全国儿童医院(Nationwide Children’s Hospital)的研究所采取了合理的措施来保护其有关外植体的尖端知识产权和商业秘密,我对全国儿童医院在整个调查过程中的合作表示赞赏”,“陈莉背叛了她10年的雇主,窃取了这家美国机构的商业秘密,并在收受中国政府的报酬后将其转移到中国”。

“Li Chen was a trusted researcher at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, conducting cutting-edge U.S. government-funded research,” stated FBI Cincinnati Special Agent in Charge Chris Hoffman. “With her guilty plea, she admits that she abused this trust to establish a company in China for her own financial gain. The FBI is committed to working closely with partners such as Nationwide Children’s Hospital to protect the innovations that make America a world leader in science and technology.”

联邦调查局辛辛那提特别负责探员克里斯·霍夫曼表示:“陈莉曾是全国儿童医院一位值得信赖的研究人员,进行美国政府资助的尖端研究”,“随着她的认罪,她承认她滥用这种信任,在中国建立公司,以谋取自己的经济利益。联邦调查局致力于与全国儿童医院等合作伙伴密切合作,以保护使美国成为世界科技领导者的创新成果”。

Chen admitted to stealing scientific trade secrets related to exosomes and exosome isolation from Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Research Institute for her own personal financial gain.

陈某承认为了自己的个人经济利益,窃取了全国儿童医院研究所有关外排体和外排体分离的医学商业秘密。

Chen and her husband, alleged co-conspirator Yu Zhou, 49, worked in separate medical research labs at the Research Institute for 10 years each (Zhou from 2007 until 2017 and Chen from 2008 until 2018). They are charged with conspiring to steal at least five trade secrets related to exosome research from Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

陈莉和她的丈夫,被指控的同谋,49岁的周宇(音译,Yu Zhou)分别在各自研究所的医学研究实验室工作了10年(周宇从2007年到2017年,陈莉从2008年到2018年)。他们被控共谋从全国儿童医院窃取至少5项与外排体研究相关的商业机密。

Exosomes play a key role in the research, identification and treatment of a range of medical conditions, including necrotizing enterocolitis (a condition found in premature babies), liver fibrosis and liver cancer.

外排体在研究、鉴定和治疗一系列医学疾病中发挥着关键作用,包括坏死性肠炎(早产儿的一种病症)、肝纤维化和肝癌。

According to her plea agreement, Chen conspired to steal and then monetize one of the trade secrets by creating and selling exosome “isolation kits.” Chen admitted to starting a company in China to sell the kits. Chen received benefits from the Chinese government, including the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs and the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Chen also applied to multiple Chinese government talent plans, a method used by China to transfer foreign research and technology to the Chinese government.

根据她的认罪协议,陈某共谋窃取商业秘密,然后利用其中之一通过制造和销售“分离试剂盒”来牟取利益。陈某承认在中国成立了一家公司来销售这些试剂盒。陈某从中国政府,包括国家外国专家局和国家自然科学基金委员会处获得了利益。陈某还签约了多个中国政府人才计划,这是中国用来向自己政府挪移外国研究和技术的一个方法。

As part of her plea, Chen has agreed to forfeit approximately $1.4 million, 500,000 shares of common stock of Avalon GloboCare Corp. and 400 shares of common stock of GenExosome Technologies Inc.

作为认罪的一部分,陈某同意没收约140万美元、50万股Avalon GloboCare公司的普通股和400股GenExosome公司的普通股。

Chen and Zhou were arrested in California in July 2019 and their case was unsealed in August 2019 when they appeared in federal court in Columbus.

陈某、周某二人于2019年7月在加州被捕,案件于2019年8月在哥伦布联邦法院出庭时解封。

John C. Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security;David M. DeVillers, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio; and Chris Hoffman, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cincinnati Division, announced the plea entered into today before U.S. District Judge Sarah D. Morrison. Assistant U.S. Attorneys S. Courter Shimeall, Peter K. Glenn-Applegate, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney J. Michael Marous and National Security Division Trial Attorney Matthew J. McKenzie, are representing the United States in this case.

负责国家安全的助理司法部长约翰·C·德默斯、俄亥俄州南区联邦检察官戴维·M·德维尔勒斯和联邦调查局辛辛那提分局负责特别探员克里斯·霍夫曼,今天在美国地区法官莎拉·D·莫里森面前宣布了认罪协议。美国助理检察官库尔·希默尔、彼得·格伦·阿普尔盖特、美国特别助理检察官迈克尔·马鲁斯和国家安全处审判律师马修·麦肯齐在此案中代表美国。
