Case Summary:

With an M.S. in Bioinformatics and extensive experience conducting research on the application of computational tools to genomic data, it comes as no surprise that our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition was approved without a hitch. Not just that, the USCIS only spent 7 days deciding whether this senior bioinformatics analyst’s research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding the role of genetic mutation in oncogenesis and in cancer therapies. Seeing that our client now has an approved EB1A petition, he is now one big step closer to a green card.

What did the EB1A petition contain?
North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) worked diligently to build a clear and concise EB1A case for our client. Based on his research background and professional achievements, we determined that we would focus on his publication record, citation count, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 7 published articles, 3,461 citations, and 10 instances of peer review service.

We also included summaries of our client’s research on the genomic characterization of several different types of cancer. His work was further discussed by a handful of his peers in their letters of recommendation. These letters played a crucial role in securing petition approval, with one recommender noting this in his letter: “[Client] has proven himself to be a one-of-a-kind researcher. He has made significant strides in bioinformatics, especially in developing tools to better understand adult and pediatric cancers. Given his record of success, it is clear that he will continue to be such a vital resource to not only the field of bioinformatics and cancer genomics but the scientific community as a whole. It is therefore imperative his stay in the U.S. be unimpeded so that he may continue to produce such important work.” These strong words of support were further backed up by supporting documents such as our client’s CV, diplomas, and employment letter.

With over 10,000 approved I-140 cases in the bag, we knew just what type of legal strategy to take to attain case approval. Further, as we have unprecedented insight into how USCIS officers adjudicate cases, we were able to provide our client with comprehensive advice regarding his EB1A petition. We congratulate him for securing petition approval and we wish him the best as he continues to conduct important bioinformatics research here in the US.
