Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Professor

Country of Origin: India

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Saudi Arabia

Approval Notice Date: August 1st, 2023 (NIW) and October 23rd, 2023 (EB-1A)

Case Summary:

Our eligible client is one of the few prominent bioelectrochemistry and bioprospecting experts in biotechnology, with a track record of success and impact in these fields. He is most recognized for discovering naturally derived small compounds that can be used to build anti-SARS-CoV-2 therapies. With a Ph.D. in botany, he is a highly qualified advanced degree scientist with extensive experience in the field of biotechnology. When he hired the North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we further discussed his research on identifying and characterizing advanced materials for use in biomedical and environmental endeavors.

After thoroughly going over his research background, we concluded that his bioelectrochemistry and bioprospecting research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the ongoing mission to improve therapeutic initiatives to combat health crises like cancer, the need for advanced new methods of identifying harmful heavy metal pollutants, the lack of effective and sensitive electrochemical sensors for environmental monitoring, and the prevention of harm to human health and the environment. Therefore, we agreed to take his case and prepare a strong NIW case demonstrating that he will continue to bring significant benefits to the United States.

  • We noted that the 207 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 book chapter, and 5 books he published, all together gathered 4,018 citations by dependent and independent researchers, demonstrating that his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in his preferred field.
  • We also specified his active and practical engagement as a judge of other experts’ work in the field. He has conducted 14 peer reviews to date, and he obviously fits this requirement based on the data presented.

Successfully, he secured his NIW approval in August 2023 just 5 days after we submitted the NIW petition package to the USCIS. Delighted with our collaboration, our client also retained us for his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) immigration petition in October 2023.

Since we were well aware of how he intends to continue his work in biotechnology in the United States. As proof of this, we presented a personal letter from him outlining the goals of his future research in the United States and furthered with his EB-1A case.

We emphasized the fact that he has already made significant contributions to national interest by synthesizing green nanoparticles from desert rose extracts for highly sensitive electrochemical sensors, and obtaining small molecules from natural sources for use in drug development. Not only has he demonstrated that he fits at least three of the regulatory requirements, but the evidence as a whole also indicates his national and worldwide renown and position at the pinnacle of his field.

Our team’s efforts successfully paid off in conveying the USCIS of our client’s expansive experience in his chosen field. Therefore, we would like to congratulate him on securing both the I-140 approvals and thanks to the Premium Processing service upgrade for his EB-1A case, which was adjudicated in only 7 days instead of 9-12 months. We sincerely thank our client for choosing our law firm and giving us the opportunity to be a part of two of his great approval stories.
