Case Summary:

The field of molecular biology has seen significant progress since our client, a research scientist, started researching protein engineering, molecular diagnosis, and both antibody and vaccine development for influenza virus strains. With a doctoral degree obtained from her birth country of China, our client is armed with the relevant skillsets needed to continue conducting outstanding research that benefits the field as well as the United States.

Our law firm’s role in this story:

Our client hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition. Seeing that EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, she had to garner her employer’s full support before hiring us. Once her employer (a private American company) supplied us with the relevant paperwork needed to file the petition, our attorneys and support staff immediately got to work building a strong EB-1B case for our client. We paid special attention to our client’s professional performance which resulted in the publication of 21 scientific articles and 81 citations to her work. We also noted the 28 times she assessed the work of other molecular biologists. Based on the information we gathered, we were able to successfully prove to the USCIS that our client is a leader in the field and that not many other similarly qualified scientists can take her place.

Additionally, we padded our client’s EB-1B petition packet with recommendation letters that she had gathered from her peers. Here is what one of them had to say about her: “Over the course of her [Client’s] academic, postdoctoral, and professional careers, [Client] has become a high achiever in the area of disease research. She stands out as a researcher of international merit and acclaim whose work I enthusiastically represent.”

Favorable outcome:

Because we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client’s investigations advance the U.S. medical sector (especially when it comes to diagnostic tools, novel therapies and vaccinations for prevalent virus strains, biomarker detection tools for early cancer diagnosis, and novel biophysical approaches for investigating protein properties), our client is now one step closer to permanent residence. We thank her for allowing our law firm to represent her EB-1B petition, and we wish her well as she continues to advance the field of molecular biology.
