Case Summary:

Within 14 days of filing an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a Chinese postdoctoral researcher in the field of nutrition medicine, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) received good news from the USCIS, marking a joyous moment for both our professional team as well as our client. This petition approval entailed hard work and we proved once again that our staff is endowed with the right talent and commitment to offer our clients an impressive standard of service.

Highlights of the EB-1A Petition Package:

We proved that the impact of our client’s research stretches far beyond the perimeter of the scientific community and positively impacts many aspects of daily life. A part of her research focuses on the pathophysiology of pediatric nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) to improve prevention and treatment strategies. It should be noted that she is particularly well-known for her investigation on the metabolic tolerance of dietary fructose in children.

Apart from highlighting our client’s significant breakthroughs in the field of nutrition medicine, we showcased her record of authorship in this discipline. Our client’s petition packet included data on the 9 peer-reviewed journal articles, 12 conference abstract articles, and 1 review she had authored at the time of filing. We also listed the 48 peer reviews she had conducted for high-impact scientific journals. Additionally, we noted her citation record, which quantified the current societal impact of her research: when we filed our client’s petition, her work had garnered 135 citations.

In order to further strengthen this EB-1A petition, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by several industry experts. This is what one of our client’s recommenders had to say about her work: “With help from [Client’s] research, I was able to assemble a study demonstrating that reduction in dyslipidemia due to dietary changes led to improvement in the condition of the liver for NAFLD patients”.

Our sheer determination and high quality service helped our client get closer to green card success just two weeks from the date of filing. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), the entire application process was expedited. We congratulate our client for surpassing the first milestone in the two-part green card process, and we are pleased to have her working with us again as she files I-485 applications for herself and her spouse.
