General Field: Bioinformatics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

Approval Notice Date: August 8th, 2023

Processing Time: 17 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A research associate with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of bioinformatics, which has greatly contributed to his exceptional success, approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him win an EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval.

We discovered that he held advanced degrees in science and was highly qualified. He studied for his B-Pharm, M.S. (Pharm. ), and Ph.D. at an Indian University. His present role as a research associate is a direct result of his outstanding academic background. His work includes research on bacteriophage immunity in gut microbes implicated in the pathophysiology of Crohn’s disease, focusing on the effects of immunomodulatory medications on the compositions of the gut microbiomes of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Thus, it was reasonable for us to assume that he will continue to make substantial contributions to the area of bioinformatics in the United States given his unique and extensive knowledge. Having handled over 16,000 approved cases, our client received the EB-1A approval in just 17 days, thanks to our team’s diligence, our client’s vast knowledge, and USCIS’s premium processing upgrade.

We began with details of the 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 patent he published, and it had altogether accumulated 1,600 citations. His high impact among colleagues is further exhibited by the fact that his remarkable citation count places him among the top researchers in the area. Moreover, we highlighted that he has also judged the work of others 40 times, demonstrating the extraordinary degree of success that our customer has attained.

Besides, we added four recommendation letters to his petition packet that our client gathered from other researchers in the field to support his exceptional knowledge relevant to his current and future work. These letters not only qualify him as an extraordinary-ability alien but also show that the United States will primarily benefit from his entry. The passage from one of the letters is shown below:

“As a fellow researcher in [client’s] field, I can attest to the knowledge and creativity required to develop novel tools such as the GMHI, which have enabled an improved understanding of the human microbiome and its implications on human health. As such, I can readily confirm that [client] is a leading member of the bioinformatics community, and his work merits your full support.”

Gladly, we proved how our client’s research—which used data from thousands of people—has made significant strides in our understanding of the role of the human microbiome. He has demonstrated a mastery of bioinformatics techniques in deciphering the complex relationships that exist between microbial communities and human health. The USCIS successfully granted him EB-1A approval which is just another illustration of our company’s exceptional track record of assisting our clients in obtaining I-140 approvals. We are appreciative that he allowed us to represent his application and share in this accomplishment.
