Case Summary:

The client that we had the opportunity to work with in this case was a Postdoctoral Researcher from India in the field of biophysics.  Her work had primarily focused on the areas of polyunsaturated fatty acids, trans fatty acids, virus and bacteria research in order to discover potential new drug target sites for the therapeutic treatment of a range of diseases such as cardiac conditions, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, inflammation, and eczema, in addition to advancing cures for deadly and easily transmitted diseases like Ebola virus.  This work had resulted in at least 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles; at the time that her case was filed, these publications been cited at least 91 times, 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 served as an editor for 2 sections of an encyclopedia in her field.  Her prominent and critical standing in her field was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, “Few scientists are able to characterize biological membranes by utilizing physical and chemical principles as well as [she]. This specific talent is highly useful for many branches of chemistry and medical research.” 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 biophysics, 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 11 months and 6 days.
