FBI Accused of Targeting Chinese Americans Trying to Cure Cancer for ‘Spying’

Award-winning epidemiologist Xifeng Wu, a naturalized American citizen, has stepped down as the director of the Center for Public Health and Translational Genomics at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in January following an investigation into her ties with China which lasted for three months.

Wu’s resignation came following accusations of secretly aiding cancer research in China, which can be deemed as “un-American.” In addition to Wu, three other top Chinese American scientists from MD Anderson have left the cancer center in recent months.
