Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law, we recently received an EB1B approval for an Associate Research Scientist in the field of Biomedical Engineering. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His work had focused specifically on the applications of focused ultrasound (FUS) in non-invasive therapy for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease as well as the treatment of solid tumors. At the time that his case was filed, his work had resulted in 10 peer-reviewed articles published in leading and international journals and numerous national and international conference proceedings and abstracts. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 45 citations by researchers around the world for his publications before filing the petition,signifying the international recognition and wide dissemination of his research work. The petitioner in this case was a private research university. The influence of his work is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “He has changed focused ultrasound technology, and he has quickly become a leader within our research community. The influence of [his] research is international, as it has been utilized in my laboratory here in Germany and in many other institutions across the globe. Despite his young scientific age [he] is an exceptionally professional and experienced research with an excellent track record. He is an appreciated member of the scientific focused ultrasound community who has made significant contributions to HIFU research. It is impossible to overstate his commitment to the advancement of therapeutic ultrasound technology and so I offer my strongest support for his work.”  It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.  His petition was approved in 2 months and 23 days.
