As part of our services, the team at North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) worked diligently to convince the USCIS of the multiple benefits of retaining our client in the US. For instance, we noted our client’s master’s degree in biotechnology, which empowered him to conduct impactful research in the field of nanomedicine, especially focused on nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems for cancer treatment. Our client’s in-depth research provides useful insights into understanding how short chain ceramides can be used in combinatorial treatments to target cancer cells, which in turn has led to applications in early diagnosis of cancer and improved therapeutic strategies to treat various diseases.

We also highlighted our client’s scholarly contributions to the field of nanomedicine: he had authored 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles which had garnered a staggering 657 citations on the date of filing.

Of immense importance was his peer review record: he had conducted 7 peer reviews for top-tier journals and sat on the editorial board of 2 other journals. These numbers pointed to his expertise and deep-seated knowledge in his chosen field.

In a bid to strengthen the EB1A case even further, we incorporated 4 recommendation letters sourced from other nanomedicine experts. An excerpt from a letter written by a distinguished professor read:

Through these experiences, [Client] has cultivated a diverse skill set in molecular biology, biotechnology, immunology, and biochemistry, making him an invaluable scientist to national and global efforts in drug delivery and nanomedicine.

Collectively, the letters strongly advocated the value of our client’s work to the US and supported his candidacy for EB1A approval.

We are happy that our efforts paid off and our client is now one step closer to fulfilling his green card dream. We wish him success in all his future endeavors and thank him for choosing us to represent his EB1A case.
