General Field: Neuroscience

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: January 13th, 2016

Case Summary:

Our client, a research associate from China, hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him file an I-140 under the EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) category. The university he works for agreed to support his petition. In large part because our client chose to file his case under Premium Processing, the USCIS granted their approval just five days later.

Our team worked diligently to present a strong case to the USCIS, particularly by demonstrating the value of our client’s research to the United States healthcare system. As our client conducts research on neural stem cells and neural signaling pathways, we proved that his work encourages the development of novel therapies for stroke victims as well as improves understanding of the central nervous system.

According to one of the recommendation letters that we included in our comprehensive petition packet, “In sum, as a neuroscientist doing research on neurological diseases for many years, I can attest to the remarkable clinical value of [Client’s] translational and preclinical studies. Based on [Client’s] stellar record of academic achievements, his outstanding expertise, and his extraordinary accomplishments in stem cell research and regenerative medicine, I rank [Client] as one of the best scientists in neuroscience and regenerative medicine.” This letter, along with five others, was contributed by other influential neuroscientists in support of our client’s EB-1B petition. Accompanying these letters were detailed accounts of our client’s citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. When we filed the case, our client had 56 citations to his 12 publications and 20 occasions of peer review service for scientific journals.

Our client recently filed I-485 applications (the final step to a green card) for himself and his family. North America Immigration Law Group wishes them all the best.
