Case Summary:

An Indian research specialist with vast experience in the field of pharmacogenomics received notification of EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval with the help of our firm, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG). Our client’s decision to file her EB1A petition with Premium Processing (PP) sliced the adjudication timeline down from 4-9 months to less than 15 days. In fact, the USCIS only spent 5 days processing her case before approving it.

The multi-step process of filing the petition started with our team’s perusal of our client’s credentials in order to ascertain EB1A suitability. Once we confirmed that her credentials made her an admissible EB1A petitioner, we countersigned the retainer agreement and concentrated on building a watertight case for her. The following are some of the key points we included in her petition:

– We emphasized the groundbreaking research our client had conducted throughout her research career: the role of genotypes in enhancing medical treatments and understanding variations in therapeutic outcomes. Her research gains precedence in the context of developing more personalized healthcare strategies in the United States. We also established that our client’s master’s degree in applied biology empowered her to make substantial contributions to the field of pharmacogenomics.

– Our client’s impressive research had resulted in 31 peer-reviewed scientific articles which had gained a remarkable 755 citations. This was a sure indicator of the widespread influence she commands on an international level.

– Our client had also conducted 12 peer reviews and was an editorial board member of 2 scientific journals. These stellar achievements categorically positioned her as a leading expert in pharmacogenomics.

– We also included 5 recommendation letters signed by other well-known researchers, all of whom supported the approval of our client’s petition. According to one of them: “[Client] has therefore generated essential findings of truly international significance, confirming her as a leading member of the pharmacogenomics field.” All the experts concomitantly endorsed our client’s candidature for EB1A, and we have no doubt that their support lent a hand in case approval.

We are pleased that our meticulous efforts helped our client surpass the first hurdle in the green card process. She recently informed us that she had obtained her green card, and we congratulate her for accomplishing her dream of becoming an American permanent resident.
