Not really. Schultz's nephew, Tyler Schultz, blew the whistle on Theranos and accumulated, at substantial risk, the documentation that did in the company. At the time, he was a Junior undergraduate mechanical engineering student at Stanford- hardly a renown scientist. And his chosen field of interest had nothing to do with blood analysis instrumentation. Theranos was another classic example of how easy it is to fool scientists and investors with extravagant claims that somehow never get properly tested.
Read this if you want to know more about Theranos: https://www.wsj.com/articles/t…and-his-family-1479335963 or look up the excellent documentary on ABC's Nightline or many other places.
Oh... and as per the article, to this day, Tyler is persona non grata at the senior Schultz's home and was not invited to Schultz's recent 95th. birthday party but Elizabeth Holmes was.
You are correct to note that at the time, Shultz's grandson was not a scientist.
I mentioned scientists.
Ergo, I was not talking about Shultz's grandson.
I was mostly thinking of Professor Phyllis Gardner.
