Emory University fired two neuroscientists after they were accused of failing to disclose foreign research funding and connections with China.
Li Xiao-Jiang told Science magazine that the university fired him and his wife, Li Shihua––with whom he led a laboratory at the Atlanta university’s medical school. The university also shut down their laboratory. Four Chinese postdoctoral students working in the lab were told to leave the U.S. within 30 days, Li said.
