Loren D. Walensky is reportedly a "renowned pediatric oncology researcher" at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard University. He is also, as of October 2019, a member of the Board of Directors at Lytica Therapeutics, "an early-stage biotechnology company working on an innovative platform for developing next-generation antimicrobials."
Roughly four months after Loren was installed as a member of Lytica's board, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Donald Trump awarded the company a $16.9 million grant to "develop antibacterial peptides with broad activity against multidrug-resistant bacteria."
"Only $5.3 million of that money was initially disbursed to Lytica, and the remaining $11.6 million is scheduled to be disbursed upon the achievement of 'certain development milestones,'" reports Red State.
Where that $11.6 million ended up is an anomaly. To this day, Lytica has only taken in $5.3 million, which in and of itself is questionable because government agencies do not usually give grant money to companies like Lytica that -- at the time -- existed for less than a year and had no other stream of funding.
According to reports, the grant was funded and organized by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), a division of the HHS that oversees and administers the Biomedical Advanced and Development Authority (BARDA), a program similar to the "PREDICT" program at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
BARDA is also linked to the Wellcome Group, one of the signers of Peter Daszak's open letter that was published in The Lancet, calling on the world to stop suggesting that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) originated at a lab in China – or perhaps a lab in Fort Detrick, Md., as some are now suggesting.
While Rochelle was not working at the CDC when her husband was awarded the grant, she has been directly involved with the HHS for more than a decade. She served as chair of the Office of AIDS Research and Advisory Council, which gave her priority access to fake television "doctor" Tony Fauci.
Rochelle was also a member of the HHS Panel on Antiretroviral Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents, which is also connected to Fauci.
As it turns out, Fauci had a lot to do with Rochelle's appointment as head of the CDC. This is why some are now calling her the "new Fauci," or the new face of the Chinese Virus who is constantly yakking on television about the latest "variants."
"One of the key people we talked to was Dr. Fauci, and Dr. Fauci really believed that Dr. Walensky was the right person to lead the CDC, so that was obviously an important recommendation," Biden transition co-chair Jeff Zients is quoted as saying.
"In Dr. Walensky, we were able to find someone with the experience and the background to lead the CDC and that turnaround."
After her appointment, Rochelle proceeded to lie on her financial disclosure forms about her husband being the co-founder of a company that had received an HHS grant. Instead, she simply listed it as a "spousal holding."
"She also doesn't indicate in that filing that his company is receiving a federal grant from the very agency in which she's being appointed to a leadership position – and the agency that still has to make decisions on whether to award the additional $11.6 million," Red State reveals.
