General Field: Infectious Diseases

Case Summary:

In this case of EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers), our client is an associate in her current position in the field of infectious diseases whose research focuses on developing diagnostic approaches for DNA viruses and vaccine development strategies for diseases such as tuberculosis which is crucial in understanding the immune response in human biology and elucidating antibody-mediated protection methods. Our aim was to persuade the USCIS of her strong background in antibody research, diagnostic assay development and characterization, and virus vectors, which have broad applications in public health, particularly in the realm of epidemiology and immunology. Thus, we agreed to present her EB1B case to the USCIS by outlining the most important factors in her petition packet:

We incorporated her qualification and professional background and explored that she held a Ph.D. in infectious diseases, immunology, and viral diagnostics with a commendable record of 17 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 letter to the editor she published in only prestigious, top-ranked journals in the field and has subsequently been cited extensively and at a rate much greater than that of her peers and colleagues i.e. 598 citations obtained by several experts in countries including the United States, Germany, and Japan, demonstrating the broad reach of her studies, whereas citations are one of the highest forms of honor given to a researcher, our client’s citations show that her work is trusted and reliable. In addition, we noted that she is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for many discerning journals and has already conducted at least 25 peer reviews, confirming her actual participation as a judge of the work of fellow researchers in the field, and she is very well worthy of continued support by the United States.

Moreover, to enhance her EB-1B petition, we included the following in her petition packet, her employment letter describing her current position, demonstrating at least 3 years of research experience in the field, a copy of the original offer letter for her current position, evidence of the well-recognized college of medicine’s ability to pay her well, along with four recommendation letters provided by other superior experts in the field, supporting our client’s research continuation in the United States. Therefore, one of the researchers opinionated:

“Much of [client’s] work focuses on methods for diagnosing and subsequently treating infectious diseases through the use of immunoassays. This work is vital for the field of infectious diseases, as the market for these types of technologies is growing rapidly… Her work ensures the accuracy of these devices, which is important for improving their effective utilization in the medical field. Early and accurate detection of disease is critical for successful treatment of numerous infectious diseases, meaning that her work presents immediate medical benefits in the United States.”

10 days after North America Immigration Law Group filed the petition, the USCIS granted her EB1B case approval. Due to our great experience on how USCIS adjudicates employment-based petitions and how to uniquely use our legal strategies to win the petition approval, this case got added as more success to our 17K+ successful case approvals. As our client has also retained our services for her I-485 applications, we wish her to get the approval soon and obtain her green card sooner. We sincerely appreciate our client for associating with us and trusting our law firm throughout the process and wish her all the best for her future endeavors.
