Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Research Assistant Professor from India in the Field of Pharmaceutics


Client’s Testimonial:


“I just received an update from USCIS stating that my I-140 got approved. I am certainly delighted. Thank you very much for all your help and support. The association with your team was wonderful.”


On January 20th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Assistant Professor in the Field of Pharmaceutics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Pharmaceutics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: January 20th, 2016

Processing Time: 9 days (Premium Processing requested)



Case Summary:

“. . . [Client] has already promoted at least two drugs to the clinical phase. This illustrates the fact that [Client’s] research has immediate commercial applications as well as health care implications in the United States. Not only has he rapidly advanced the field of Pharmacology, but he has also expanded our knowledge of treatment methods against these devastating conditions.”

The statement above is one of many made by a handful of experts in the field of pharmaceutics who supported our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. These experts wrote letters attesting to the value of our client’s work to the United States; they also reiterated their support for our client’s development of new drug delivery systems for circumventing drawbacks for treating cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and dyslipidemia. As with all our clients, we advised him on the process of selecting recommenders and obtaining their testimonials.

North America Immigration Law Group put together a well-thought-out petition packet that accounted for our client’s 185 citations, his Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics, his 19 published papers, 1 book chapter, 2 patents and his considerable peer review involvement. Our EB-1A petition established that his work is of great value to the United States and that he will continue demonstrating sustained international acclaim through his research efforts. As our client opted to file his case under Premium Processing, he received approval from the USCIS merely nine days later.

Our client recently submitted I-485 applications (the last step to a green card) for himself and his family. We wish them the best in their journey.
