Case Summary:

With an M.S. and 16 publications under his belt, our client—a research engineer from India—had years of experience in the field of biomedical engineering. When he approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition, we agreed to take on his case if his company was willing to lend its full support. As EB1B is an employer-based visa category, our client had to convince them to provide us with the necessary paperwork to facilitate the I-140 petition. Once our client obtained their support, our team got to work on his EB-1B petition.

Our client’s EB-1B petition was accompanied by evidence that highlighted his outstanding ability as a researcher in his field of biomedical engineering. Among other things, the evidence was composed of the following:

  • We detailed his publication record and citation count—at the time of filing, our client’s 16 publications had gathered 83 citations.
  • We noted the 17 times our client had conducted peer reviews for distinguished scientific journals.
  • We reviewed and discussed our client’s work on the application of engineering principles to longstanding challenges in hip, spine and ankle repair. Overall, we convinced the USCIS that our client’s research is applied in the improvement of surgical procedures and the design and development of medical devices.
  • We also used the 6 recommendation letters contributed by other experts working in the field as evidence of our client’s caliber as a researcher. According to one of these experts, our client “… has distinguished himself as an excellent biomedical engineer who is capable of producing clinically relevant findings.” Another expert noted that: “… [Client] has achieved international recognition as an outstanding scientist in the field of orthopedics.”

We congratulate our client for securing EB-1B petition approval, and we thank him for choosing to work with our law firm. We also wish him well as he continues to progress the important field of biomedical engineering.
