Case Summary:

At Chen Immigration Law Associates, we recently received an EB1B approval for a senior scientist in the field of optical bio-imaging and biophotonics. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His work mainly focused on the development of novel optical coherence tomography, laser sources, data analysis, and image processing methods for applications in optical bio-imaging. His research has resulted in at least 10 peer-reviewed scholarly articles published in leading journals in the field, 1 invited article, 2 book chapters, 18 conference papers and abstracts, 1 issued patent, 6 patent applications, and 4 provisional patents. Furthermore, this client had a total of 270 citations by researchers around the world for his publications before filing the petition. The petitioner in this case is a qualifying petitioner with the ability to pay the beneficiary’s full wages. The petitioner is a multinational medical technology company, manufacturing tools for eye examinations and medical lasers as well as solutions for most neurosurgery, dentistry, gynecology and oncology. Among its products are the most common tools used by ophthalmologists and optometrists. The beneficiary’s outstanding expertise is evident in a quote by the petitioner, “[The beneficiary] is an irreplaceable member and an influential leader, who has made substantial contributions in the improvement of optical coherence tomography technology and he will undoubtedly continue to significantly impact the field and industry in the future. [The beneficiary’s] presence and expert research is vital to [the petitioner], and therefore we act as the sponsor and petitioner of the EB-1 petition at issue. […] [The beneficiary’s] employment is on a full-time basis and his expected employment at [the petitioner] is indefinite, assuming the professional integrity and high performance requirements of the position is continuously met and his role continues to fill a business need.”  It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an Outstanding Professor or Researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements. His EB1B case was approved in just 2 days.
