Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the opportunity to work with was a postdoctoral research associate from China in the field of biological and agricultural engineering. Specifically, her specialized research has focused on the development of biofuels and related bioproducts through the pretreatment of plant dry matter, or lignocellulosic biomass, as well as oil production through the oleaginous yeasts and other microorganisms. Her work had resulted in twelve peer-reviewed scientific articles, several technical reports, and ten presentations at national and international conferences; at the time that her case was filed, her publications had been cited at least 204 times by independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of her work. She had also reviewed 22 manuscripts for at least 13 distinctive, internationally-circulated journals. Her superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, “[Client] was instrumental in developing a novel simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process for cellulosic lipid production that resulted in greater and faster lipid cultivation. It was shown that this process resulted in a yeast biomass with high levels of oil as well as proteins and polysaccharides, which could be separated out as co-products to make biofuel production more economically feasible. These advances have increased efficiency, decreased costs, and made large-scale production viable.” 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 biological and agricultural engineering, 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 28 days.
