Feds: NYU researchers took bribes from Chinese co.May 20, 2013 @ 12:40 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - Three researchers are charged with taking bribes from a Chinese government-supported institution in exchange for access to restricted research from a New York University lab.
The researchers' work involves MRI technology. It's funded by the National Institutes of Health.
They're accused of providing nonpublic information about the technology to a medical company in China and a research institution supported by the Chinese government.
Two of the defendants were awaiting Manhattan court appearances Monday on charges of commercial bribery. The third was at large.
NYU Langone Medical Center says they all have been suspended.
