Harvard professor charged with lying about ties to Chinese government-run recruitment program

BOSTON – A Harvard University professor was charged with lying to officials about his involvement with a Chinese government-run recruitment program and his affiliation with a Chinese university, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Charles Lieber, chair of the department of chemistry and chemical biology, was arrested at his office at the prestigious university Tuesday morning and charged with lying about his participation in China’s Thousand Talents Plan, a program to recruit people with access to and knowledge of foreign technology and intellectual property.

His attorney didn’t immediately respond to an email sent Tuesday.

Prosecutors said that under Lieber’s Thousand Talents contract, he was paid $50,000 a month by the Wuhan University of Technology in China and living expenses up to $158,000. He was awarded more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at the Chinese university, prosecutors said.
