Client’s Testimonial:

“I was very satisfied with your work.”

On August 20th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Instructor in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Instructor

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: August 20th, 2021

Processing Time: 11 months, 26 days

Case Summary:

“[The client’s] extensive background in biochemistry and, in particular, her expertise in elucidating the role of proteins and their interactions, has enabled her to contribute significantly to the literature of her field. Through her research projects, [the client] is addressing fundamental questions and providing innovative models, methods, and observations about key biological processes, all of which have placed her at the forefront of the field of biochemistry.”

“[Client’s] research has monumentally improved our ability to treat cardiovascular disease, which is the number one cause of mortality in the United States. The widespread and deadly nature of this illness has created a serious need in the United States for improved treatment techniques, and [the client] is an undisputed leader in this effort.”

“[The client’s] work has helped researchers understand the various mechanisms involved in heart disease, which is a particularly serious healthcare concern for millions around the globe. Her research is therefore essential to supporting healthcare advances and public wellness efforts worldwide.”

These are excerpts taken from the letters of recommendation for a very talented client from India who came to NAILG for help with her EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition filing. Our team signed her on after ascertaining the value of her claims through a background check. We were able to find the following:

  • She is one of the few leading experts in biochemistry focusing on protein-protein interactions, and she has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. She is especially well-known for her work on the identification of novel protein–protein and protein-lipid interactions related to general cardiomyopathy and inflammation.
  • She has spent years investigating issues related to protein–protein interactions and is regarded as an authority in the field of biochemistry. The field has recognized her authority by inviting her to review and evaluate the work of her peers no fewer than 15 times.
  • In addition to directly advancing information about protein–protein interactions in human diseases through her original research and peer review service, she has actively engaged her peers in the field of biochemistry by authoring and co-authoring 7 peer-reviewed journal articles and one editorial that have been published in international journals.
  • Moreover, her work has attracted a wide audience and has been cited by researchers both in the United States and abroad.
  • She also submitted evidence of 154 citations, along with 5 letters from experts in the field attesting to the importance and significance of her contributions.

These statements and related objective evidence proved her active and actual participation in the field, leading her case to victory despite an RFE (Request for Evidence). We are grateful to her for trusting us and retaining us for her NIW and I-485 petitions.
