Case Summary:

Our EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary) client from India is one of the few leading innate immunities and vaccinology experts in aquaculture, and he has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. He is especially well-known for his work characterizing the impact of toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the immune responses of phylogenetically diverse fish species and the development of the Recombinant Attenuated Edwardsiella vaccine (RAEV) vector to prevent infectious diseases in fish. This is why one of the 4 recommending experts had the following to say about his work:

“By understanding fish immune responses including the function of regulatory cytokines such as discussed here, [client’s] research facilitates the development of sustainable aquaculture with respect for fish health and welfare that will help reduce the need for (over) fishing and associated destruction of the natural environment while ensuring food security for millions of people around the world.”

At the same time, our client’s work had been cited extensively by his peers and has received funding from institutions including the United States Department of Agriculture/National Institute of Food & Agriculture (USDA/NIFA) and Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR). The field has also come to recognize his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 75 times.

He has also been able to actively engage his peers in the field of aquaculture by authoring and co-authoring 24 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in international journals. Additionally, his overall work related to the improvement of understanding immune responses has been cited 722 times by peers using his prior findings to make additional discoveries related to promoting improved immune responses in fish species ranging from Indian major carps to Nile tilapia. In fact, he has made it to the top 1% of the most highly cited authors list publishing on topics in aquaculture over the past 10 years according to Microsoft Academic. His publications have been cited by researchers in at least 34 countries according to Google Scholar. Another recommendation read as follows:

”… it is obvious from the novelty and value of [the client’s] research, the utilization of his work in both industrial and academic spheres, and his role of leadership in the community that he holds a place distinct from others working in the field of aquaculture. Because of his singular set of skills and the urgent need for his findings as well as their substantial benefit to people around the world, it is critical that his research continues with all possible support.”

These expert testimonials helped him by positively backing up his work and helping him win the EB1-A approval. They helped prove that his work in the field is indeed extraordinary and needs to continue in the United States. We are proud and thankful for being a part of our client’s journey to success.
