General Field: Analytical Chemistry

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Processing Time: 8 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

“His research has greatly contributed to the field as well as the wider research community through his relentless publication of breakthrough developments for the detection of cancer. Frankly, he is an invaluable asset to his field and other related disciplines.”

The above statement is taken from one of the four recommendation letters accumulated by our client, a scientist working in the field of analytical chemistry. Hailing from China and after completing his Ph.D. degree in chemistry, he approached us to file his alien of extraordinary ability (EB1-A) petition.

Since, a petition for the first preference category of individuals with extraordinary ability, (“EB1-A”), unlike the employment-based immigration visa under the second preference (“EB-2”), at least requires:

  • Evidence of original contributions, usually through publication, is of major significance in the foreign national’s science, academic, artistic, or athletic field.
  • No specific job offer/labor certification is required for a foreign person as long as he/she is entering the United States to continue work in the field in which he/she has an extraordinary ability, therefore self-petition is allowed.
  • Performance in a significant role for organizations or establishments that have a distinguished reputation.
  • Receipt of a higher salary or remuneration than is usual in the field.
  • Other comparable evidence if the above types of evidence do not readily apply to the foreign national’s occupation.

Therefore, we assimilated the following essentials from his academic and professional records in his petition packet to make a convincing case in his favor:

  • His microfluidics and exosome analysis research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including cancer treatment and prevention. His strong background in chemistry has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming microfluidics and exosome analysis technologies.
  • He is particularly well-known for his contributions to microfluidic technology-based devices for ultrasensitive cancer diagnosis.
  • His research has resulted in 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles, being cited 581 times in at least 38 countries according to Google Scholar.
  • He has conducted at least 14 reviews to date.
  • His study has received funding from The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Noah’s Bandage Project (NBP), these organizations are dedicated to progressing developments in medicine for alleviating the burden of diseases such as cancer, so their endorsement of our client’s work is a reflection of its clear importance in the diagnosis of Ewing Sarcomas.

Our client’s extraordinary ability has been demonstrated by sustained international acclaim, and his achievements have been recognized in the field through implementation by others and extensive citations of his work. His impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work indicate not only that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States.

He finally achieved his EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval in 8 days only (thanks to premium processing).

We are delighted to be part of his victorious journey and would like to send him best wishes for his future endeavors.
