Two Researchers At Local Hospital Sentenced For Giving Secrets To China

U.S. Attorney's Office

Two former researchers at Children's Hospital in Columbus have been sentenced to prison for selling research to China.  Yu Zhou and Li Chen will serve 30 months in prison. The two worked at separate labs from 2008 to 2018. The stolen research was used to treat medical conditions in premature babies, liver fibrosis, and liver cancer. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
