General Field: Immunology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from China in the field of immunology contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We evaluated his credentials and were assured that his notable career achievements qualified him for an EB-1A petition.

As part of our services, we analyzed our client’s profile to narrow down some of his key accomplishments in the field of immunology, namely, that his original research ideas have fostered innovation on the immunological mechanisms of various infectious diseases, such as viral hepatitis and parasitic infection. We also showcased how his work has laid the foundation for the development of effective clinical therapies for numerous infectious diseases.

Additional evidence:

Other integral evidence that we incorporated into our client’s EB-1A petition dossier included the 226 citations gathered from the 26 peer-reviewed scientific articles that he had authored at the time of filing. These numbers proved to the USCIS that our client’s scientific output reflects the way he has been driving progress in the field of immunology. Additionally, his petition also noted the 55 times he had acted as a peer reviewer on behalf of various scientific journals.

To further support his EB-1A petition, our client collected six recommendation letters from other influential experts working in the field. These experts advocated for our client’s distinguished achievements and leadership role among the best in the industry. According to one of them: “[Client’s] background is therefore characterized by an advantageous combination of education and hands-on experience, which enabled his past research efforts and will continue to aid him in the years to come”.

Our client’s petition was filed under Premium Processing (PP) at Texas Service Center (TSC). The case was approved within 10 days without the issuance of a Request for Evidence (RFE). We have no doubt that our clear and precise presentation of our client’s achievements as well as our expert guidance played a role in case approval. We congratulate our client on this EB-1A petition success, and we wish him the very best as his work in the field of immunology continues to benefit millions within and outside the US.
