Case Summary:

Our EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) client from China is one of the few leading endomembrane trafficking, protein ubiquitination, and lysosomal degradation experts in cell biology, and he has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in these areas of study. His work focused on identifying new components in human lysosomes and investigating their roles in lysosome biogenesis and regulation. He approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him file his EB1A case to prove his unique and expansive expertise in the field of cell biology and that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability, also, that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States.

Before taking up his case, we noted that his extraordinary accomplishments are strongly based on his extensive knowledge and experience in the field. With a Ph.D. in genetics, our client is a highly qualified advanced degree scientist with extensive experience in endomembrane trafficking, protein ubiquitination, and lysosomal degradation. This strong academic background has laid the foundation for his current position as a research laboratory specialist intermediate.

His current position demonstrates his intention to continue his innovative research in his area of extraordinary ability. Continuing to advance the field through fundamental and applied research is of immeasurable importance because it approaches therapies and vaccines for various problematic diseases, including genetic disorders, lysosome storage disorders, and neurodegenerative disorders, which positively impact the medical field and the health of global society.

We were certain of his credentials and agreed to craft his EB1A petition packet with the following attributes:

  • We confirmed that he has actively engaged his peers in the field by authoring and co-authoring 11 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in international journals, all of which have been cited 224 times across the world in at least 21 countries.
  • He has also made original contributions of major significance to the field of cell biology, including to his work as a peer reviewer, he sits on the editorial board of the American Journal of Science & Research, further demonstrating that he satisfies this criterion since he has conducted 67 reviews for prestigious international journals. Thus, his work has been majorly significant, and his achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to address the global burden of human disease.
  • In addition, we specified how his work has also received funding from prestigious national and international organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Programs for Science and Technology Development of China, the National Basic Research Program of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the National Key Research and Development Program of China.

Therefore, it is evident that he has established himself as a leader in cell biology through his highly consequential research, and he is an asset to the nation’s scientific community imploring him with the resources necessary to continue his work unabated.

Furthermore, we incorporated five letters of recommendation to corroborate our client’s extraordinary ability in the field of cell biology which is well-recognized by other established experts and one of them stated the below-mentioned:

“[Client] has shown that he is operating at the top of the cell biology field. His work meets an urgent need for an increased understanding of cell and organelle biogenesis. These processes are central to all life on Earth, so thorough comprehension of their functions opens the door to improved medicine, such as vaccines. For these reasons, my professional assessment confirms him to be an indispensable scientist whose work merits continuous support from the United States.”

All of this evidence is fully supported and corroborated by letters from internationally recognized experts in the field who have used our client’s work in their research endeavors and attested to its influence and major significance. In totality, he is fully qualified as an individual of extraordinary ability in the field of cell biology and is granted EB1A approval from USCIS adjudicating authorities just 1 month and 10 days after we submitted his case along with the premium processing upgrade. We are grateful to him for retaining our law firm for his EB1A application as well after bagging NIW approval with us. We truly wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
