As a student, I know a faculty member in my department who falsified critical data in a grant proposal to NIH which won him multiple million dollars. Assuming the case is simple and the evidences are strong, would there be a good FCA case? There are a few such cases reported in the past in public media. In each of these cases,the university involved has actively carried out investigations. However, if a university (and ORI) wants to cover up a case, would there still be a chance of winning?
