Client’s Testimonial:

“I appreciate your great help. Thank you so much for your help all through this journey. The whole process has been successful with your prompt and timely response.”

On June 10th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Bioinformatics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Bioinformatics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: June 10th, 2021 (EB-1A) and June 10th, 2021 (NIW)

Processing Time: 8 days (EB-1A) (Premium Processing Requested) and 3 months, 8 days (NIW)

Case Summary:

When an assistant professor from India hired us to help him in building an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we appraised his credentials and noted that our client has a Ph.D. in bioinformatics, and he has been researching for many years in the same field, focusing on risk factors for breast cancer and esophageal basal cell dynamics. His research is certainly relevant for the treatment of neurological disorders and cancer.

Since many petitioners get more than one petition filed as it moves them closer to attaining their green cards, therefore, our client also decided to continue to work with our law firm for filing another petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category to increase his possibility to get the approvals sooner.

Even though both the NIW and EB1A visa categories are unique, they contain some similarities. We prioritized to showcase his extraordinary academic and professional background, and we added the 367 citations accumulated from the 36 peer-reviewed articles, 4 book chapters, 1 preprint, and 1 published abstract he published along with emphasizing his proposed research summary. Besides, his publications have been cited by researchers in at least 40 countries, signifying that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of bioinformatics. Also, he has contributed to the field through his service as a peer reviewer by conducting 30 peer reviews at the time of filing for the petitions. He has conducted peer reviews for several journals, whereas only the most experienced members of a given field are invited to conduct this type of work, thus, his service as a peer reviewer highlights his good standing among editorial boards in the field of bioinformatics.

Furthermore, we incorporated four recommendation letters obtained by other national and international experts, confirming that numerous accomplishments in the bioinformatics field set our client apart from other researchers and uniquely position him to continue serving as a leading figure. The following excerpt has been taken out from one of the submitted letters:

“Through his original research, his substantial body of publications, and the many citations his work has received, it is evident that [client] is a highly influential researcher in his field. His work focuses on some of the greatest challenges to public health in the United States and around the world, and as such he deserves unwavering support in the continued pursuit of his research goals.”

Overall, based on his research triumphs and remarkable records within the field, we proved that he is well-positioned to reach his goals related to the improvement of treatment strategies for cancer and other diseases, and he must be supported to continue his research in the United States. We are glad that our efforts have paid off miraculously well. Our client secured both the petition approvals on the same day. Since he upgraded his EB-1A case to premium processing, hence it got approved in just 8 days after we filed the petition. We thank our client for choosing North America Immigration Law Group for representing his I-140 applications. Top of all, the best news is he also bagged his green card after 3 months of receiving his I-140 petition approvals. We truly congratulate our client on this breakthrough and thank him for his kind cooperation with our entire associated team.
