Case Summary:

“[The client’s] research has revealed crucial findings about how immune cells interact with one another and the pathogens during infections or injuries. [Client’s] research has helped identify genetic targets, namely the FGF pathway, which will help support the process of wound healing and combat infections in the context of life-threatening diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Therefore, his research is essential to the advancement of studies in the areas of diabetes, cancer, and infectious diseases research, making him an indispensable resource to the scientific community.”

“[The client] has global acclaim in the field of molecular biology. His work is of particular importance to address life-threatening conditions whose molecular mechanisms are controlled by aberrant gene expression and abnormal protein modifications. [Client’s] work has provided fellow researchers with an invaluable tool to use in studying protein behavior and, through this, improve the outlook for those living with diabetes and other diseases. His repeated successes in his past work, as well as the continued progress made in his current research, are invaluable to the community and show the necessity of ongoing support for his endeavors.”

The backing of a peer group is an essential factor in determining the success of a research project as well as the researcher. This is why when we get clients who need our help to apply for various kinds of petitions, we make sure to use letters of recommendation to back up their applications. The two statements above are examples of this. It was issued by two experts in the field of systems biology, for a research fellow in the area hailing from India. Our client, the research fellow, wanted to file an EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition with our help. So, our team made sure to use 4 letters of support from his fellow scientists.

On the other hand, we made sure that his petition-writing process was seamless and efficient. We ensured success by saying the following:

  • He is one of the few leading molecular biologists with expertise in systems biology, RNA biology, and diabetes research. He is especially well-known for developing several computational tools that are important to identify aberrant phosphorylation sites in proteins.
  • The field has recognized him as an authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 30 times.
  • He has actively engaged his peers in the field of molecular biology by authoring and co-authoring 16 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 correspondence, 1 editorial, and 1 preprint paper.
  • His publications have been cited an enormous 1,405 times in other peer-reviewed journals by researchers in at least 61 countries according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of molecular biology.
  • We included detailed descriptions of 4 of our client’s key projects as evidence of his contributions to and expertise in the field of molecular biology.

Hence, we were able to show that his impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work indicate not only that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States. We were thus glad to hear of his EB1-A approval only 106 days after filing. We thank him for his trust and we wish him the best of luck.
