General Field: Computational Systems Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Bioinformatics Scientist I

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 29th, 2021 (EB-1A) and August 19th, 2021 (NIW)

Case Summary:

Our client with a Ph.D. in molecular genetics and biotechnology, contacted North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. After 3 months we filed her NIW petition, she decided to retain our services to compose another petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. Filing more than one petition is not that uncommon as many petitioners do so for expediting their green card process. Given our extensive experience in handling employment-based visas, it was not complicated for us to prepare another petition for our client. Thus, we aimed at emphasizing her impressive qualification and professional background, solid record of past achievements, unique knowledge relevant to her current and future work to the USCIS and listed the following in the respective petitions:

We summed her intended research work focusing on the adaptability of gram-negative bacteria and the functions of junk DNA, and this research certainly addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including the treatment of diseases such as tuberculosis and breast cancer. In addition, she carried out this research with prestigious competitive funding support provided by numerous government institutions as the Slovenian Research Agency, the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund, the Hungarian National Innovation Office, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the Novo Nordisk Foundation. This funding aid verifies that her research has international and national significance and it is considered highly relevant to scientific interests around the world.

Besides, we have noted her publications; the 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter, published in some of the most authoritative and influential journals in the field. Her work has been cited in at least 42 countries, gathering the impressive 321 citations from other independent and leading researchers from well-regarded institutions and organizations, relying upon our client’s findings to further their investigations. Not only this, but we also recorded that she has already conducted 70 peer reviews for well reputable journals. Her consistent peer review experience further confirms her position as a recognized scientist in the field of computational systems biology. She also served on the editorial board for nine journals, reviewing manuscripts, evaluating their feedback, and adjudicating the submitted research manuscripts to be either accepted or rejected for publication thus this serves as corroborative evidence of her actual participation as a reviewer.

“In summary, [client] has a strong record of successful research that is highly relevant to the scientific community and, perhaps more importantly, to public health on a global scale.”

The aforementioned lines have been taken out from one of the four recommendation letters provided by our client. She acquired these letters from other scholars in the field, who proved how our client’s research has direct implications for the healthcare industry in the United States.

We are pleased to help our client in achieving both EB1A and NIW petition approvals 4 months apart. Our unparalleled legal strategy used in both cases certainly moved our client a major step closer to her green card success. We would sincerely thank her for choosing us to represent her I-140 applications as well as for her I-485 application.
