Case Summary:

A postdoctoral scholar contacted us to build an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We commenced appraising his credentials and verified that he held a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering. We were convinced of the substantial merits of his academics. We were needed to prove to USCIS that our client exhibited the abilities to continue his research work in the United States. In our client’s EB-1A petition packet, we included:

  • Citation Count, Publication, & Peer-Review Experience: We highlighted his publications that have been cited 254 times by other researchers in at least 7 countries, determining that he is integral to the progression of biomedical engineering knowledge. We noted the 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published. Besides, our client judged the work of other researchers for highly acclaimed journals 35 times which further demonstrates his superior hold in the field.
  • Research Summary: Also, we detailed our client’s research on adhesive materials and tough polymers. His smart adhesive design using bioinspired polymer chemistry research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the need for smart adhesives, biocompatible adhesives and polymers, and adhesives for a variety of surface substrates in marine environments.

Reinforcing our client’s petition, we included 5 recommendation letters obtained by him from other renowned researchers in the field. One of the recommenders stated as below:

“[Client] has a strong record of achievement and publication in the field of biomedical engineering. His publications are of high scientific quality, and that they are of great importance for both his field and the United States. It is my view that these arguments prove that he is a valuable asset.”

We are delighted that our client achieved his EB1A petition approval within 2 months, thanks to Premium Processing. Our team at North America Immigration Law Group would like to congratulate him for endeavoring in his suggested research work.
