Case Summary:

Having laid out strict guidelines by USCIS for the qualifying criteria under the EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability), the petitioner needs to prove beyond reasonable doubt that their case has eminence by showcasing their work is worthful to the United States of America. This process can be both burden-some and sluggish for anyone who is not so familiar with the system. This is where North America Immigration Law Group comes in. We assist clients from all over the world to understand and remain at the fore of the curve, leading them to certain success.

Last year in September 2021, a client from India came to us asking for help with her EB1-A case. She was a research fellow working in the field of molecular biology. Having earned a Ph.D. in molecular cell biology, she wanted us to build a winning case for her. So, she provided us with her updated CV and other relevant documents and our team then took over and extracted information about her academic and professional background. We included the following things into her petition packet:

  • We were able to find that she is especially well-known for her investigation of mGPDH as a metformin target in thyroid cancer and her work involves identifying and developing novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to improve thyroid cancer treatment through preclinical studies that can be translated from bench to bedside. Her work has thus been majorly significant, and her achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to address thyroid diseases.
  • The field further has recognized her expertise by inviting her to review and evaluate the work of her peers at least 52 times and in addition to this, she even sits as an associate editor on the editorial board of three other journals. Moreover, her work has resulted in 23 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 book chapters, published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals and conference proceedings in her field. Also, due to its great applicability in the field, her research in molecular biology has been cited 228 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar. These publications have been cited by researchers in at least 30 countries, thereby illustrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in her field of expertise.
  • Moreover, her study has been supported by funding from the Indian Council of Medical Education and Research, National Institutes of Health and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. Our client’s research therefore serves as an evidence that her studies align with major international interests and clearly serves to advance the global research sector. Her work thus, would help in protecting and improving human health in the United States.
  • To further support her claim, we included excerpts from letters of support in her application, two out of five are quoted below:

“It is a pleasure to provide my strongest recommendation for [client’s] application for permanent residency status in the United States. [Client] brings a unique set of skills and experiences in nutritional biochemistry intrinsic to the understanding of folate vitamin deficiency disorders and the development and treatment of cancer that is critical to research and education in this country.”

“Her contributions in this area are unique, I can think of no other researcher in this country that is working on this very important area of human health. Beyond this, [client’s] research has complemented and supported research in many laboratories in the United States and world-wide as indicated by the numerous citations of her work in the scientific literature.”

All of these factors together with her impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking her services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to her current and future work indicate not only that she qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that her entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States. These facts aided by the excellent case preparation strategy employed by our experts, helped her obtain her EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) application approval in 13 days only. She even got her I-485 approval with the help of our law firm. We are grateful to her for her continued trust in us. We wish her the very best in her life.
