A University of Virginia researcher has been awarded approximately $820,000 after a federal jury found he was fired after telling authorities that his supervisor altered a grant awarded to him by the National Institutes of Health.

Weihua Huang filed the lawsuit in August 2011, claiming he was fired by the university after he reported to supervisors that Ming D. Li, a laboratory supervisor, changed figures on the grant that spelled out how much time would be spent by lab staff on the project. Those figures determined how much money from the project would be paid to staff members.
