Case Summary:


A research associate from India recently reached out to North America Immigration Law Group for help. He wanted to file for a green card under the EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) category, and his employer—a university—agreed to serve as his petitioner. Our client has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and his research focuses on the design and synthesis of novel compounds for therapeutic treatment of cancers and neurodegenerative diseases.

In preparing our petition packet, we were sure to understand and thoroughly account for our client’s research projects in the field of organic chemistry. By doing so, we demonstrated that his findings are integral to the advancement of the United States’ drug development sector. Our carefully worded petition also included our client’s citation count and publication record, which at the time of filing, came to 331 citations and 32 articles. To strengthen the petition, we also helped our client contact other influential organic chemists to gather recommendation letters. One of the recommenders wrote, “It is clear that [Client’s] accomplishments in chemical research allied to medicine are of the highest standard and that he is an unusually talented researcher whose documented achievements have firmly established him at the forefront of his field.”

As our client decided to file his case under Premium Processing (only available for EB1 categories), he received his approval notice just 9 days later. We would like to congratulate him and we wish him the best in his continued investigations.
