Success Stories: A Chinese Scientist in Chemistry with 4 Patent Applications, Gets EB1-B Approval in Just 74 Days with Our Diligent Efforts


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks for your help with securing my EB1-B approval – appreciated!”

On August 31st, 2021, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Scientist in the Field of Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: North Carolina

Approval Notice Date: August 31st, 2021

Processing Time: 2 months, 13 days

Case Summary:

The Outstanding Researcher or EB1-B category is a subdivision of the much broader priority worker criteria set by the USCIS. Quite like the other subdivisions of the priority worker category, the plain language of the EB1-B demands proof of the petitioner’s talents and expertise beyond reasonable doubt. One must also make convincing arguments that the client intends to continue working in their area of expertise. So having found that our client from China was a scientist in polymer chemistry and his research addressed some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the fundamental characteristics and behavior of important polymeric materials, we went forward and countersigned the retainer agreement.

NAILG’s team of experts had already determined that his work was valuable to the U.S.A., but going through the details of his academic and professional career, we decided that it was important that we included these facts in his application too. So, we used his publication records, his citation counts, and his review experience to aid our argument in his favor.

We had thus found that his work has resulted in 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 4 published patent applications. His work has also been published in some of the most prestigious, high-impact journals in his field. His work has also been cited 309 times in peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar. These citations come from independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world. He is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. He has already conducted at least 45 reviews. Only top-level experts in their field are invited to perform this important review work, so this frequent review activity further demonstrates his important standing in the field.

On the other hand, we found that he had collected 4 letters of support from experts, 2 from those who knew him and his work personally, and 2 from those who knew him only via his research. This proved of immense value to the case as it was able to prove the continuing importance of his work in the United States. This can be seen in the two extracts quoted below:

“[Client’s] past and current contributions to the field of polymer chemistry make him an influential researcher. He has consistently offered unique solutions to major challenges facing his field. Based off of his distinguished record of work and research, there is every reason to believe that he will persist in his efforts to explore using polymer chemistry to benefit the field and the United States.”

“[Client’s] exceptional history of acumen in the field of polymer chemistry confirms that he is well-equipped to ensure that the United States maintains its position as a leader in this market. [Client’s] mastery of polymer chemistry and his extensive work in the field distinguishes him from his contemporaries and firmly places him at the forefront of polymer chemistry research.”

We are proud of having had a part to play in his journey to success and we thank him for putting his continued trust in us during the entire EB1-B, O1-A, and NIW petitions.
