Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the pleasure of working with was a Postdoctoral Research Associatein Arizona in the field of Genetics. Her specialized research has focused on the study of genetic, hormonal, and other factors that dictate the yield and quality of economically and nutritionally vital cereal crops like rice and corn. Specifically, her research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the fertility and prime growing conditions of cereal crops. Her work had resulted in 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles and numerous presentations at national and international conferences. At the time that her case was filed, her publications had been cited at least 312 times by researchers around the world, serving as apparent and objective evidence of her major influence and impact on the field of endeavor, in addition to her sustained international acclaim. She had also conducted 20 manuscript reviews for 5 distinctive, internationally circulated journals. Her superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, The U.S. is a major global producer of cereal grains particularly maize (consistently number one).[Client]’s research has and will determine important biological players involved in the control of endosperm development in maize. This will be not only important in maize, but this information can be transferable to other seed crops for modification of seed development not only to improve yield but also to improve the quality of the enormous variety of products that can be derived from the seed.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that she sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of Genetics, and that her continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, her case was approved in just 29 days.
