Harvard Prof. Created Virus-Sized Transistor, 3091
Good evening, I’m still reporting on the coup.
Yesterday’s indictment of Prof. Charles Lieber, the former Chair of Harvard’s Chemistry Department, has brought increased scrutiny of what this relatively young shining star of implantable nano-electronics world was up to.
Why would the Chinese pay this Harvard professor $50,000 per month to be giving 75% of his time working for the benefit of a communist dictatorship?
After wading through reams of high tech garble about nanowire transitors, I finally found something that sounded like it might be a good fit for an arrest warrant back in January.
The cover story of the Jan.-Feb. 2011 edition of Harvard Magazine glowingly discussed Dr. Lieber’s revolutionary work.
“Imagine being able to signal an immune cell to generate antibodies that would fight bacteria or even cancer. That fictional possibility is now a step closer to reality with the development of a bio-compatible transistor the size of a virus. Hyman professor of chemistry Charles Lieber and his colleagues used nanowires to create a transistor so small that it can be used to enter and probe cells without disrupting the intracellular machinery. These nanoscale semiconductor switches could even be used to enable two-way communication with individual cells.”
Remarkable, eh? Is it a stretch therefore to believe that a ruthless dictatorship might find such a technology an inviting espionage target?
Four years later, “Scientific American named injectable electronics one of 2015's top ten world changing ideas.”
This from Lieber’s Wikipedia entry:
“Lieber's current work focuses on integrating electronics in a minimally/non-invasive manner within the central nervous system. Most recently, he has demonstrated that this macroporous electronics can be injected by syringe to position devices in a chosen region of the brain.”
The possibilities for good are endless. Back in 2011, the Harvard Magazine piece stated that Lieber was working on a National Cancer Institute “proof of concept” using these nanowire sensors for the early detection of prostate cancer. How about a nanowire implant which could serve as the patch between an injured spinal cord and the brain?
But it also implies that those interested in weaponizing medical technology might try to devise a device that would cripple any of the many contributors to human immune function. If you can teach a cell to turn on some functions, you theoretically could teach them to turn them off.
Or how about low voltage pingers that would provide exact positional detail in your next flu shot. You know to make Contact Tracing so much easier.
These are applications which Dr. Lieber could know nothing about.
Just one final bit of information, back in January, when Dr. Lieber was first arrested, one of his Chinese associates was arrested trying to hide 21 vials of a chemical substance in his sock as he tried to leave the U.S. to escape back home to China.
According to reporter Dave Lieber (no relation), writing in the Dallas Morning News on May 1, 2020:
“…contained cancer cells that the associate was stealing to conduct his own research in China.”
Dave Lieber’s conclusion: it’s just another of the coronavirus conspiracies.
“The granddady of virus conspiracy theories involves Bill Gates. Some people believe that the founder of Microsoft [is] using the crisis to create strict surveillance systems.”
Hmmm, maybe, but if he was, would he be willing to tell us about it in advance?
I’m still reporting from just outside the citadel of American freedom. Good day.
