Case Summary:

A research fellow, holder of a Ph.D. in computational biology with vast experience in information technology and biology, chose North America Immigration Law Group to help her in documenting an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. Our legal team commenced building a strong case for our client, and in just 3 months, she was successfully permitted EB-1A from USCIS without any request for evidence (RFE).

Apart from her substantial academic background, we also found that our client’s influential scholarship in the field of computational biology has laid the foundation for her to strive to investigate issues related to cancer genomics and transcriptomics, biomedical informatics, and non-coding RNA bioinformatics. Her research work addresses some of the most pressing issues, including predicting synthetic lethality in precision medicine, understanding the role of non-coding RNA in human disease, and designing potent siRNAs.

Going forward, we highlighted how she actively involved her peers in the field by authoring and co-authoring 19 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 book chapters that have been published in international journals and conference proceedings, and it had garnered 778 citations by peers using her prior findings. The field has recognized her authority by inviting her to review and evaluate the work of her peers no fewer than 40 times, demonstrating that her work and achievements are of utmost significance in the field of computational biology.

Further to the evidence of her major authority in the field, we noted that her findings have also gone on to influence her peers, and her publications have been cited by researchers in at least 50 countries, thereby exhibiting that these publications are internationally recognized.

To reinforce her petition, we combined four recommendation letters obtained by her from other experts in the field asserting our client’s expertise in the field that enables her to contribute crucially to the field of computational biology here in the United States. According to one of the recommenders:

“[Our client] has managed to develop remarkable tools for pharmaceutical research and development that have done much to advance the field. Her endeavors have distinguished her as a researcher at the forefront of her field.”

After months of diligent work and thanks to Premium Processing, our client received her EB1A petition approval. Firstly, we thank her for trusting our law firm with her petition application, and we also congratulate her on this important breakthrough.
