Case Summary:

Merely one day after we filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for our client, the USCIS granted their approval. Our client, an assistant research scientist from India, is immersed in the field of computational chemistry with expertise in three-dimensional protein structure prediction and evaluation, molecular modeling for therapeutic targets, virtual screening for small molecule inhibitors, and evolutionary cancer genomics. Her work is recognized by researchers around the world and is of great value to the United States. To prove it to the USCIS, here’s what we included in her EB-1A petition dossier:

  1. We detailed the 184 citations gathered from her work and demonstrated that various scientists who are involved in computation chemistry heavily rely on her findings to progress and support their research.
  2. We noted the 13 times our client conducted peer reviews for a handful of scientific journals. This impressive record denoted the significance of our client’s insights to other experts in the field.
  3. When we filed the case, our client had published 7 scientific articles and one conference paper.
  4. To fortify our client’s EB-1A petition, we encouraged our client to reach out to other experts in the field for recommendation letters. To our delight, our client returned with six signed letters, all of which stated the importance of her research to the United States, especially its medical sector. Here are a handful of quotes extracted from these letters:
  • “As a researcher at the top of her field, it is apparent that her work must be allowed to continue. Without her keen insight and strong abilities as a researcher, I anticipate costly delays in the progress of research on genetic mutation and its relation to various diseases and cancer.”
  • “[Client] has provided such unique scientific contributions to her field that I do not believe anyone else in the field could presently match. She is certainly one of the most advanced individuals working in this area, and the improvement of the field is heavily dependent on her continued research.”
  • “Based on her published work, and particularly on her development of a new method of treating overgrowth of tissue, [Client] is certainly one of the most distinguished researchers engaged in computational studies today. Only a scant handful of fellow researchers in this field boast similar records of success and acclaim.”

We are pleased that our client received an EB-1A petition approval, and as the cherry on top of the cake, in record time too. She has elected to file her I-485 application using our comprehensive D.I.Y Packet. It contains information on how to go about adjusting one’s status for permanent residence, and we wish her the best with this step.
