Case Summary:


A research fellow working in the field of neuroscience recently approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Our client, who is from China, researches axon development and regeneration. His work on neurodegenerative diseases and traumatic brain injuries has led to advancements in treating these diseases, both in the United States and abroad.

We worked diligently to put together a petition packet that detailed our client’s research projects, his doctorate in neuroscience, and 83 citations gathered from his 6 publications. We also demonstrated his professional influence by specifying his extensive experience assessing the work of other neuroscientists. When we filed his EB-1A petition, our client had conducted 38 reviews for numerous high impact journals. Our petition documented these reviews; it also included several recommendation letters obtained from specialists in his field. One of these letter stated, “As evidenced by his extensive citation record and influence, [Client] is certainly one of the most valuable researchers in the field of neuroscience. His contributions to his field have been great, already revolutionizing neuroscience research and helping to find solutions to treating nerve damage. Considering the greatness of his past accomplishments, I am certain that [Client] will continue to contribute meaningful research to excel progress in the field of neuroscience.”

Thanks to Premium Processing, our client received his EB-1A approval notice 22 days after we filed the case. We congratulate him and wish him well in his continued research.
