On May 31st, 2022, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Cell Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cell Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: May 31st, 2022

Processing Time: 14 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A leading cellular pathology expert in cell biology came to us from India seeking help with his EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case. He had achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study, and his work had heavily influenced ongoing research related to developing targeted treatments for COVID-19 infection, modeling HIV-1 within-host dynamics, and creating novel treatments for Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Having spent several years in the field he has come to be regarded as an authority in the field and the field has recognized this authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 36 times. Additionally, his research has resulted in 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles which have been cited all over the world in at least 35 countries more than 160 times already. Thus, he has not only successfully completed and published the results of his research in the field, but his discoveries have also gone on to influence his peers.

His cellular pathology research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues. This is why we used detailed descriptions of 4 of his key projects as evidence of his contributions to and expertise in the field of cell biology. His strong background in cellular models, molecular biology, and proteomics has also allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming cellular pathology research.

These contributions to the field of cell biology were also found relevant by other experts who wrote letters of recommendation corroborating the value of his work. He received at least 4 such letters which our team used while writing the petition document and also attached for further reference of the adjudicating bench. The approval process was also speeded up by the premium processing upgrade that our client chose to use.

Since the EB1-A is an immigrant visa only for those foreign nationals who can prove that their work in a chosen area is extraordinary through contributions in the past and projected work in the future, our team made the best use of the certificates and transcripts provided by the client. The documents helped the case a lot getting him the approval in just 14 days.

We are glad and proud of having worked with him and we wish him all the very best for the future.
