Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks for your help throughout the process.”

On August 26th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Synthetic Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Synthetic Biology

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: August 26th, 2021

Processing Time: 6 months, 1 day (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

“[The client’s] work has wide-reaching uses in the field that justify the necessity of her research. Biocommodities, for instance, are especially useful in the context of United States healthcare issues. [Client’s] research has direct implications for researchers and manufacturers of biocommodities in understanding the metabolic and protein-folding pathways of the production host and modification. By improving our understanding of network motifs, [client] has improved our ability to engineer recombinant host for higher yield of biocommodities.”

“[Client’s] research forms a critical part of changing the world’s reliance on fossil fuels, which has been linked to increased greenhouse gases and concerning effects on the global climate. Her work with carbon uptake and carbon sources in E. coli develops novel biofuels for use in sustainable fuel technology. ”

These are two examples from letters of recommendation that our client, a research scientist from India, was able to get for her contributions to the field of synthetic biology. Given that she has an extensively documented record of success in her field of endeavor, her work has resulted in 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 book chapters. In fact, her work has been published in some of the most authoritative and influential journals in the field.

She has also submitted evidence of 502 citations, along with 4 letters from experts in the field attesting to the importance and significance of her contributions. Not only has she successfully completed and published the results of her research in the field, but her discoveries have also gone on to influence her peers. That is, her publications have been cited by researchers in at least 47 countries according to Google Scholar. She has also conducted at least 5 reviews for journals that include. These statements and related objective evidence prove her active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field. Based on this evidence, she clearly meets this criterion set by the USCIS.

To confirm the elite level of accomplishment demonstrated by her, this work has been extensively recognized by independent scholars, and all of her recommenders are internationally renowned experts in the field, belonging to elite institutions.

She has spent years investigating issues related to constructing synthetic E. coli, eliminating carbon catabolite repression, and clarifying inherent asymmetry in single input modules and is regarded as an authority in the field.

She was also able to secure some major funding sources such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Research Foundation of Korea, the Rural Development Administration, etc.

We are thus thankful to her for her continued trust in us and for retaining us for her NIW petition too.
