On August 6th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Cancer Research (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cancer Research

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Virginia

Approval Notice Date: August 6th, 2021

Processing Time: 3 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

The EB-1A category of immigration is reserved for foreign nationals who can demonstrate extraordinary ability in fields of science, arts, education, business, etc. We at NAILG (North America Immigration Law Group) specialize in immigrant petitions. Thus, when a postdoctoral fellow in cancer therapeutics from India approached us, we made sure that she qualified the rigorous criteria set by USCIS before countersigning the retainer agreement.

One of the key markers of academic and professional excellence is the award of funding, grants, and financial assistance in form of fellowships from recognized institutes of eminence. This was especially true of our client, who had received multiple grants from some of the leading research institutions in the country of origin before applying for her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Our team of experts at NAILG made sure that she received her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval with the least amount of hassle, and given the fact that our client opted for Premium Processing, her application came through in a short period of 3 days.

Some of the other things that we included in our petition along with information of the grants she had received were details of her publication records, citation counts, experience as a reviewer, and multiple letters of support.

  • She has actively engaged her peers in the field of cancer research by authoring and co-authoring 13 peer-reviewed articles that have been published or accepted in international journals.
  • She has conducted at least 23 reviews for leading international journals in her area of expertise. It is known that only well-known experts are called upon to review the work of fellow researchers, thus indicating her pre-eminence in the field. Thus it is evidence of her active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field.
  • Due to its great applicability in the field, her work on cancer research has been cited 158 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar. These citations come from independent and leading researchers from well-regarded institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of her work. To further illustrate this, we included visual representations of the countries where her work was being cited.
  • We finally included multiple letters of support from dependent and independent experts in the field. One of the independent letters said the following:-

“Her work is transformative for the field, identifying the mechanism of cancer treatment resistance and eliminating the issue with specific target inhibitors and combination drugs. Her fellow researchers have built upon this work to continue to advance in cancer research and it is for this, I strongly recommend the extension of [the client’s] work within the United States.”

We thank her for choosing us to represent her at USCIS for both EB-1A as well as I-140 NIW petitions and we wish her the very best for her future endeavors.
