Case Summary:

A Scientist II from India, who has made original contributions of major significance to the field of synthetic organic chemistry, focusing on the synthesis and purification of oligonucleotides and has already greatly advanced the national interest by providing groundbreaking improvements in protocols and processes for organic chemical synthesis.

Galvanized by the quality and the number of our client’s merits, we agreed to take his EB1A case (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category, which is chartered for non-Americans who can prove their work is extraordinary through recognition received from nationally or internationally.

To certify the national or international claim our esteemed client achieved, we noted his synthetic reprogramming of kinases research, which addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the need for new and effective therapeutics and clean fuels created via organic chemical synthesis. Thus, he has provided independent researchers from around the world with insight critical to a range of advances in the field of synthetic organic chemistry. Those other researchers consistently look to his methods and findings to inform and guide their studies indicating that he has made contributions of major significance to research on the reprogramming of kinases. Other notable experts confirm that his citation record indicates a significant impact on the field; the 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 patents, 2 patent applications, and 1 book chapter he published accumulated 1,600 citations in at least 52 countries.

Therefore, when a noteworthy synthesis expert in synthetic organic chemistry hired our law firm to file his EB1A application, we ensured to conduct a vigilant evaluation of his credentials to prove the veracity of his merits as well as how his work is going to be beneficial to the United States.

After demonstrating his sustained international acclaim, his achievements have been recognized in the field through implementation by others and extensive citation of his work. His impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts (conducted 25 peer reviews to date), and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work indicate not only that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States. Hence, we included four recommendation letters acquired from our client’s fellow experts in the field further corroborating his background and accomplishments in his area of expertise. One of them has been stated below: –

“In conclusion, [client] is an extremely talented scientist who has significantly contributed to advancements in synthetic organic chemistry. His development of a method to synthesize compounds is beneficial to pharmaceutical development and ongoing research. Since the United States prizes scientific diversity and expertise, both of which he possesses in abundance, it is clear that his continued presence is in the country’s best interests. I urge you to approve his request so as not to deprive the United States of a researcher with such notable international recognition.”

Thus, the adjudicating authorities at USCIS approved his case in just 7 days with no RFE issuance. We sincerely thank our team and our client for all the diligence put into this petition and for accomplishing this milestone for our esteemed client as well as for our reputable North America Immigration Law Group.
