Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, a postdoctoral research fellow from China hired NAILG to help him secure an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. He needed our expertise to customize his EB-1A case to the USCIS and establish to them that his research on the development of immune repertoire sequencing technology for diseases like malaria and HIV, and bioinformatics tools to facilitate biomedical research address some of our world’s most pressing issues, including the treatment of cancer, genetic disorders, and overall public health in the United States and around the world. Therefore, we began to prepare a strong case on our client’s behalf and incorporated the following data in his petition dossier:

  • We noted our client’s 15 peer-reviewed scientific articles and three U.S.W.O. patents publications that were cited 285 times from leading researchers in at least 25 countries. In addition to these citations, we observed that his work has been supported by funding from several renowned institutions, such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, demonstrating the significance of his work to the global scientific community.
  • Moreover, we recorded that he has conducted 23 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals, confirming his active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field.
  • Furthermore, we added five recommendation letters obtained from our client’s fellow superiors to support his petition further. These letters served as subjective evidence in corroborating the provided testimonies to be true. According to one of his recommenders:

“[Client] is an accomplished biomedical engineer who has a proven record of making substantial contributions and solving problems related to the field…He is an invaluable asset to the United States and therefore must be allowed to continue his research efforts in the country.”

We are pleased to convince USCIS of our client’s continued research in the U.S. as it is essential for finding a cure for HIV/AIDS and preventing unnecessary deaths of many. Thus, he received his EB-1A petition approval without any hindrance. We thank our client for choosing our firm to manage his I-140 application and wish him well as he embarks on this milestone.
