Case Summary:


At North America Immigration Law, we recently received an EB1B approval for a Research Assistant in the field of biochemistry. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His specialized research had focused on improving our understanding of the molecular development of diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases, the development of novel models to study proteins, and the advancement of protein-based and biomarker therapies. His research work had resulted in at least 6 peer-reviewed scholarly articles published in leading journals and numerous conference abstracts, presentations and proceedings. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 19 citations by researchers around the world for his publications before filing the petition, which was especially impressive given the specialized focus of his research. In addition, he had reviewed 19 manuscripts submitted to journals in his field. The petitioner in this case was a public research university. The importance of his continued work in the US is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “[His] work is so critical because it is helping us to discover new biomarkers to identify those individuals at risk for cardiovascular or metabolic diseases. This would mean better preventative care, and less serious complications or fatalities per year…It would be a great detriment to the world if [his] critical work were delayed or hindered, and it goes without saying that it would be in any nation’s interest to retain such a promising and talented scientist.”  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 6 months and 15 days.
