A Chinese researcher was sentenced to 30 months in prison on Feb. 1 for conspiring to steal U.S. trade secrets and make a profit in China.

Chen Li, 47, a former resident of Dublin, Ohio, worked at the Ohio-based Research Institute at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital from 2008 until 2018. Her husband, Zhou Yu, 50, worked at a different medical research lab at the same hospital from 2007 until 2017.
