On January 20, 2015, We Received Another EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) Approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Cell Biology (Approval Notice)

General Field: Cell Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate and Innovation Fellow

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Michigan

Approval Notice Date: January 20th, 2015

Processing Time: 7 Months, 15 Days (Including RFE Response Time)



Case Summary:

For this case we worked with a cell biologist from India who conducted her research in the highly specialized areas of cellular processes as they pertain to both breast cancer and HIV. Her highly prolific career thus far had produced 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 12 presentations and papers at national and international conferences, and she had been cited at least 90 times, primarily by independent researchers at prominent and leading institutions and organizations worldwide. This remarkable citation record clearly indicates the major significance of our client’s work. She had also reviewed at least 7 manuscripts for 2 or more distinctive, internationally-circulated journals. 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 Cell Biology, and that her continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. An independent recommender affirmed the significance of our client’s research: “I wish to emphasize that without knowledge of how HIV-1 promotes itself, we lack data critical to developing targeted and efficacious therapies and drugs.  This is why I fully support this application as a consequence of the terrific results obtained by [Client] in regard to the molecular biology of the virus.  I am convinced that without her efforts, we would be significantly behind in understanding the full range and scope of HIV-1’s physiology and growth processes.” With the proof and documentation that we provided, her case was approved in 7 months and 15 days.
