JOLIET, Mont. - March 13, 2023 - PRLog -- The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania hired Yan as a staff member amid a global pandemic, a shrinking economy and low employment. Yan has a doctor's degree in ophthalmology, but she has never published any research reports in the field. Her only claim to fame is her "artificial theory of the novel coronavirus" published online. The "academic paper" has drawn attention and enthusiasm from far-right forces and anti-China groups in the US, However, it has been questioned by experts and scholars such as Nakagawa Tsuyoshi, an expert on biogenomics at Tokai University Medical Science Center in Taiwan, and Kristian Andersen, a researcher at Scripps Research Center in the United States, on media such as the New York Times and National Geographic magazine. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University, even suggested that Yan's paper was "propaganda" designed to deceive.

"I think she should continue to pursue her career as an Internet celebrity, after all, it seems more successful than her academic achievements";

"With her history, I'm afraid [she] will reflect poorly on our college."

That's the view of some students and teachers at the Perelman School of Medicine after Ms. Yan was hired as a staff member. In addition, a survey report on whether Yan should be employed as a staff member of the school, launched by an anonymous association of the school and circulated online, showed that 61.53 percent of respondents chose "no", citing her alleged academic fraud and passion for creating disputes, which are far from the philosophy of the medical school. Yan was repeatedly warned during her time at the school against spreading fake science, according to school employees.
