1. Mini Thread on Conflicts of Interest involving the authors of the Nature Toilet Paper:
Kristian G. Andersen
Andrew Rambaut
Ian Lipkin
Edward C. Holmes
Robert F. Garry

2. Thanks to @newboxer007 for forwarding the link to the research by an Australian in Taiwan (not on Twitter)
3. K.Andersen didn't mention "competing interests"
Only Garry listed Zalgen Labs, which we will look at later.
In acknowledgements, Michael Farzan, Wellcome Trust, NIH, ERC & ARC are mentioned.
Author affiliations listed as usual.
Note the 328 Citations!
4. Kristian Andersen (1)
Andersen worked with USAMRIID & Fort Detrick scientists on research, with Robert Garry, Jens Kuhn & Sina Bavari among others:
5. Kristian Andersen (2)
Works at Scripps Research Institute, which WAS in serious financial trouble, haemorrhaging 20 million $ a year.
But just when the first virus cases were emerging, they received great news.
They issued a press release dated November 27, 2019:
6. Scripps Press Release - 2019-11-27
“Scripps Research and Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (China) today announced a trans-Pacific chemical biology research collaboration that combines the expertise of both institutions.”
7. Shenzhen City Council & Peking University
"Scripps Research faculty will establish joint labs at Shenzhen Bay Lab with research areas including synthetic chemistry, natural products, glycobiology, chemical genetics, proteomics & other critical areas of chemical biology"
8. Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (SZBL) is a Guangdong Provincial Lab located in China’s Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay area
"SZBL strives to become a hub for world-class research at forefront of innovation, spurring novel solutions to issues challenging mankind"
9. Dulan Drift's Summary
"a new bio-tech lab set up next to HK with the HK protest in full swing, in partnership with a bankrupt firm whose head scientist is a cheer-leader for genomic surveillance, funded with CCP money in late Nov 2019.
Nothing fishy about that at all!
10. Remdesivir
Scripps is a supporter of remdesivir, also endorsed by WIV which applied for a patent for the drug.
“It’s a very safe and effective drug,” said Eric Topol, founder & director of the Scripps Research Institute, who rejects HydroxyChloroquine
11. Scripps BOD includes:
"WuXi's founder Dr. Ge Li, an organic chemist, who founded WuXi PharmaTech in Shanghai in December 2000."

12. K. Andersen does not like Daszak and accused him publicly of hiding a bombali ebola virus strain for his DOD masters (next tweet)
Also he said:
" you would have thought they (EcoHealth) could have prevented the current pandemic, and they didn’t.”
13. Andersen & Rambaut vs Daszak & Olival (Round 1)
Twitter Academics Spat!
Knives Out!
Blood all over the place!
14. Andersen & Rambaut vs Daszak & Olival (Round 2)
15. Bombali Ebola!
I noticed Kristian Andersen upped the stakes by making a veiled allusion to Bombali Ebola Virus, alleging that EcoHealth had failed to upload its sequence, but did not reveal the motives. However, we do know why.
Ecohealth supplies deadly viruses to DOD!
16. Bombali Ebola! Ecohealth Busted!
Ecohealth working with PREEMPT, DTRA and DARPA to smuggle deadly viruses back to US Labs while posing as an NGO.
17. Back to Conflicts of Interest after a break:
Lipkin, Holmes &, Garry
18. Edward Holmes Intro
GOF work with George Gao https://t.co/ZzJu4BcxE8
Insect Man (WCDC)
Chinese Virus Database
PLA Collaboration
19. Investigation by dulan drift
Edward C. Holmes: Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity, School of Life and Environmental Sciences and School of Medical Sciences, The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
20. Holmes (3) - Sydney University
Sydney University gets an estimated $534 million a year from selling bogus degrees to Chinese students, which amounts to 23% of total university revenue. That figure doesn't include grants from China for various think tanks or joint-projects.
21. Holmes (4) - Sydney University
Whistle-blower, Prof Babones says:
"Some students don't read & write English well enough, here no one is able to speak English. It's an unspoken but widely understood rule that we are expected to help students pass"
22. News Links - Sydney University
$12b hit as Chinese students stay home
Chinese students stop coming to Australia
Unis accused of compromising English standards
23. From Corruption to Tyranny
Selling fake degrees is corruption, plain & simple.
"UOT Sydney is involved in a A$10m research partnership with CETC, a Chinese state military technology company that developed an app used to trace & detain Uighurs"
24. Edward Holmes CV is better than mine...
He is Honorary Visiting Professor at Fudan University & Guest Professor, CCDC Beijing
There have been cases exposing such arrangements as CCP cash delivery devices in return for publishing favourable papers.
25. Finished with Holmes
Just a symptom but not the disease itself
26. Ian Lipkin (Columbia University, New York)
My previous research
Supports GOF work:
Lipkin as a sociopath
Lipkin in Wuhan & at Scripps
Awarded CCP Medal
27. Lipkin via @CarltheChippy (where is he?)
Honorary Director of Beijing Infectious Disease Center.
Chair of Scientific Advisory Board of Institut Pasteur de Shanghai
Board Member
Guangzhou Institute for Biomedicine & Health.
EcoHealth Alliance
28. Extra Lipkin
Global Virome Project
Dr. Lipkin well described
Lipkin in China
Lipkin with Covid
29. As "dalton drift" points out Columbia University has made 4 billion $ over the last decade from Chinese students, so it wasn't surprising when they cancelled an event on Nov 23, 2019 entitled: “Panopticism with Chinese Characteristics: Human rights violations by the CCP"
30. Of all of our co-authors, Lipkin is the biggest in terms of profile. Known as the Virus-hunter, he's definitely number one in terms of China "guanxi".
Read the rest of the research here:
Lipkin is well connected to Bavari, Franz & Koblenz among others
31. Robert F. Garry:
Tulane University & Zalgen Labs
Tulane was involved in Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium (VHFC) consortium with Scripps (Andersen) & Harvard for work in Africa related to Lassa fever, classified as "a potential bio-terrorism threat"
32. Robert F. Garry is listed as the founding director of VHFC & the current President. Dalton Drift wonders if that influenced the decision to appoint Zalgen Labs, Garry’s spin-off company, as the industry partner.
(mentioned in competing interests in the Nature Paper for Garry)
33. Zalgen Labs - Robert Garry
"Zalgen Labs has 10 employees. Its revenue is reported to be $2 million but just before the virus outbreak it was only $204, 000. In the few months after the outbreak its income has increased 10-fold"
34. Zalgen Labs
More background, interviews:
Dollars for Profs:
Projects (image)
35. Garry - Geisbert (UT Galveston BSL4)
The Geisbert laboratory currently participates in the development of immunotherapeutics for Lassa fever in collaboration with Tulane and Zalgen Labs
36. Garry - Gallaher
Dr. Garry worked on monovalent cation perturbation by viruses as a graduate student. Snore!
At Tulane, he joined a team lead by William Gallaher (Bill) that first identified similarities between retrovirus & myxovirus glycoproteins
37. This is getting tedious!
A bit of light entertainment, watch Robert "Butcher Boy" Garry explain that SARS-COV-2 is 100% natural
38. Garry's Links & Research Output
To Scripps & Kristian Andersen
39. Leaving the Best to Last
Vicious Attack on Garry by Horowitz who has an axe to grind it seems. Great Image!

@jimmy_wales Thanks for replying!
1/. I will make a thread here with some details so you can see for yourself how a small clique of pro Chinese gatekeeping editors and admins have bullied editors, throttled dissent and gamed the system to impose their POV.

2/. I am a supporter of

4/. Some disturbing

1. Project 1742 (EcoHealth/DTRA)
Risks of bat-borne zoonotic diseases in Western Asia

Duration: 24/10/2018-23 /10/2019

Funding: $71,500

2. Bat Virus Database
Access to the database is limited only to those scientists participating in our ‘Bats and Coronaviruses’ project
Our intention is to eventually open up this database to the larger scientific community

3. EcoHealth Alliance & DTRA Asking for Trouble
One Health research project focused on characterizing bat diversity, bat coronavirus diversity and the risk of bat-borne zoonotic disease emergence in the region.

Ruifu, obviously obsessed with PLAGUE,
is a friend of Oliver Pybus (one of the Holmes, Andersen, Rambaut, Lipkin Gang)

The $1.25 billion facility is a biosafety level-4 laboratory and will replace the aging Plum Island Animal Disease Center.
NBAF is expected to be operational by 2022-2023.
Manhattan, Kansas, was selected as the location for NBAF.
