Case Summary:

Our client, an assistant professor holding a Ph.D. in medical physics, contacted us to build an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. He was well aware that we would lead him to EB1A success with all our efforts. Hence, we began to evaluate his documents. We were certain of his extensive experience in the medical imaging field, confirming his extraordinary ability to pursue his research work here in the United States. We counter-signed the attorney-client agreement and constructed our client’s case by adding the below-mentioned details to his EB-1A petition packet:

  • We noted the 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles published by him in some of the top-ranked and distinctive journals in the field. These extremely selective journals have consistently trusted his research for publication, comprehending that our client’s work is considered to be among the best in the field, and this altogether gathered 1,235citations stemming from throughout the globe. We also observed that his work has had a great impact on other researchers. We proved it by noting that his work has been cited by many other experts in at least 55 countries, demonstrating his work is highly regarded and has an international influence in the field of medical imaging. Besides, he not only did maintain this impressive record of publications and citations but also judged the work of his peers in the field by conducting 95 peer reviews, establishing his splendid position in this area.
  • For qualifying the EB1A, we were further required to check our client’s leading roles, and it’s no surprise that we explored that he served several important roles as a peer reviewer, an organizer, and moderator to prove that he is a key figure in the field. Only the most accomplished researchers can be rendered with these leadership responsibilities.
  • Furthermore, we added four recommendation letters in our presentation in support of his case. The letters were obtained by our client from fellow experts, and one of the recommenders stated: “[Client] has been conducting cutting-edge research that benefits both academic and industry-based communities. Few others in the field possess similar skillsets and level of prior contributions, making him a uniquely valuable individual in medical imaging research and one who is certainly worthy of the United States’ sustained support.”
  • Most importantly, we elaborated his research on optimizing the performance of both magnetic resonance and PET imaging technology while also holding great applicability for diagnosing diseases such as SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19, and the progression of other diseases. His work has also been supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), signifying nationwide recognition of the importance of his findings towards public and economic wellbeing in the United States.

Successfully, we persuaded the USCIS of our client’s outstanding experience in the field of medical imaging, and he must be permitted to continue his research within the United States.
Also, thanks to the premium processing service, the case was expedited, and he achieved his EB-1A approval in just 3 months and 22 days. The entire team of the North America Immigration Law group thanks him for allowing us to represent his EB-1A application and be a part of this success story.
