Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Assistant Professor in Louisiana in the Field of Molecular Biology


Client’s Testimonial:

“Great news! Thanks for your great help. I really appreciate it!”

On January 14th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Molecular Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Molecular Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Louisiana

Approval Notice Date: January 14th, 2016

Processing Time: 8 days (Premium Processing requested)

Case Summary:


Only eight days after submitting this client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, North America Immigration Law Group received the approval notice from the USCIS. The accelerated timeline was a result of our client’s choice to file under Premium Processing. Now our client, who was born in China and who is now an assistant professor in the field of molecular biology, is more than halfway through his journey to getting a green card.

Our comprehensive petition packet was comprised of information about our client’s peer review experience, the 218 citations his work has earned, and his 14 publications. We also included information on his Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Furthermore, we thoroughly accounted for his research on the underlying mechanisms of the occurrence of aneuploidy, characteristic of cancer cells. As our client’s research is essential to understanding the causes of cancer, we established the importance of his work to the well-being of all Americans.

“[Client’s] work clearly demonstrated the underlying mechanisms associated with Sgo1 transport and recruitment from the kinetochores to the centromeres. Taking these results into account, it is apparent that Sgo1 represents a significant target for the therapeutic treatment of cancer, for which there is currently no effective cure. His work is even more significant when considering that cancer is currently one of the top causes of death internationally.”

The statement above was taken from a recommendation letter written by an expert in our client’s field. The testimony, along with several others that we obtained from other molecular biologists, was included in the dossier that supported our client’s EB-1A petition. We congratulate our client on his I-140 approval and wish him the best in his future investigations.
