Case Summary:

A postdoctoral scientist from India who worked in Biochemistry was our client in this case. His specialized research had focused on the therapeutically important areas of membrane protein assembly and protein folding. His body of work comprised 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 4 book chapters, and 22 papers in the proceedings of national and international conferences; by the time we filed his case, his research had received no fewer than 73 citations from independent and leading researchers at prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, a strong indication of the major significance of his work. He has also performed peer-review service for 21 distinctive, internationally-circulated journals, reviewing at least 50 manuscripts, and served on the editorial boards of 10 reputable, international journals. An independent recommender attested to our client’s superior expertise: “[Client’s] discovery of novel protein unfolding pathways via the innovative use of single-molecule force spectroscopy is truly pioneering work, and has greatly advanced our knowledge of the mechanisms by which proteins attain their three-dimensional structure.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of Biochemistry, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in eight months and six days.
