Case Summary:


“In summary, [Client’s] research activities and her widespread knowledge have significantly influenced the direction of vitally important fields of membrane biology and neuroscience and will continue to positively impact the advancement in the research field for now and far into the future.”

This statement was made by an expert biochemist who contributed a recommendation letter in support of our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. This letter, and several others that our client obtained, was included in the carefully worded petition dossier that North America Immigration Law Group submitted to the USCIS on our client’s behalf.

Our client, who works in the field of biochemistry, is a postdoctoral researcher from India researching lipids and their crucial role in higher eukaryotic membrane organization, dynamics, and function. We established the significance of her findings not only to other researchers in her field, but also to the United States as a whole, especially within its drug development and clinical areas. Besides detailing our client’s research efforts, we listed the 725 citations amassed from her 26 publications, and also included evidence of her knowledge and influence in the field by highlighting the 18 times she conducted peer reviews for high impact journals. By the time we were ready to file our client’s EB-1A case, we had collected an extensive list of her professional accomplishments.

We would like to thank our client for selecting us to represent her case. The approval of this EB-1A petition is another example of North America Immigration Law Group’s stellar record of helping our clients get one step closer to permanent residency.
