General Field: Analytical Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: June 7th, 2021 (EB-1A) and June 9th, 2021 (NIW)

Processing Time: 13 days (EB-1A) (Premium Processing Requested) and 4 months, 9 days (NIW)

Case Summary:

Miraculously, our client received his EB-1A and NIW petition approvals just 2 days apart.
Our client initially hired us to assist him to build an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition and within 4 months retained our services for filing another petition under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Since our client already reviewed our unique expertise used while filing for his NIW case, he was certain that it would be easy for us to formulate another strong petition, which would be more convincing to the USCIS. We proved our client correct by devising unprecedented petition packets for both cases, aiming at verifying our client’s credentials to the best of our knowledge.

The list of details that we incorporated in our client’s NIW and EB1A petitions:

  • We highlighted the 167 citations garnered by expert researchers from at least 20 countries, thereby demonstrating that his published 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of analytical chemistry. His published articles, which number over a dozen, have been published in some of the most reputable journals. This publication activity passes through a rigorous process of peer review to ensure its high quality for publication, thus, confirming our client’s role as a leading contributor to analytical chemistry as he frequently produces articles with important ramifications.
  • In addition, we observed that he has oftentimes served as a peer reviewer, emphasizing his important role in this major facet of scientific research. He has completed 15 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals whereas only established experts are entrusted for these significant tasks in the field, proving him to be a reliable expert and judge of research.
  • Most importantly, we discussed his qualification and research brief, holder of a Master of Science degree in polymer science, researching the development of novel analytical strategies to support biotherapeutics development, and we concluded that his research is essential in understanding the advancement of cancer treatment and prevention. Also, notably, his work has been funded by major national public health organizations such as the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund; the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science; and the NIH. Hence, his work has been majorly significant, and his achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to advance cancer treatment and prevention.
  • Our client’s extraordinary influence in the field is discussed more specifically by other superior experts in the field. Therefore, we also added four recommendation letters, attesting to the impact and significance of his research on the global community. According to one of his recommenders:

“Given my brief overview of [client’s] research contributions to analytical chemistry, both innovated methods, and applications, it should be clear that he has widespread recognition within his field. Through his publications, citations, and continued research contributions, he has distinguished himself among the top researchers in the field. He is thus a critical component to the research community of the United States. I strongly endorse him and believe his work will continue to have a significant impact on our country.”

North America Immigration Law Group is well-recognized for its more than 17,000 approved employment-based petitions. We are glad that we were able to convince USCIS of our client’s contributions in his proposed research which underscores his role as an authority at the forefront of analytical chemistry. Yet once again, in these NIW and EB-1A cases, we conquered the complex processes, and our client was granted his NIW and EB1A approvals. We truly thank him for trusting and retaining our law firm with his I-140 applications and I-485 application. We hope that he soon receives his I-485 approval and green card.
