Case Summary:

A recent client of ours is well-known as a researcher within the cardiovascular medicine research community. Her exceptional work in the field focuses on novel MRI technology to visualize specific pathological targets in cardiovascular diseases. When she initially contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her obtain a green card, we thoroughly examined her academic credentials and came to the conclusion that she was a perfect fit for NIW (National Interest Waiver).

We demonstrated that her findings have caught the attention of other leading experts in the field of cardiovascular medicine, several of whom readily contributed recommendation letters in support of our client’s continued stay in the country. One of the recommenders wrote: “[Client] has contributed to these international medical efforts throughout her history of research in cardiovascular medicine. (…) Her work has not only unveiled new insights into cardiovascular diseases, but also presented the field with novel therapeutic targets, thus foundationally enhancing global public health”.

Alongside these recommendation letters stood information pertaining to our client’s accomplishments in the field. For instance, we listed the 130 times her 16 peer-reviewed journal articles, editorials, and book chapters were cited by dependent and independent researchers from prestigious institutions globally, and the 10 reviews she conducted for 2 top journals. Further, we elaborated the various ways our client’s research has had an immediate and far-reaching impact on cardiovascular medicine. Since cardiovascular diseases, one of the leading causes of death in the United States, is a major public health concern in the country, our client’s research is thus critical to alleviating the impact of cardiovascular disease on the people and the economy of the US.

Our team worked zealously to build a strong NIW case for her and we are pleased that the USCIS issued an approval notice in less than 7 months. We congratulate her on this win and thank her for choosing us. North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) continues to work with her on the last step of the green card process for applicants based in the US: I-485 Adjustment of Status, as well as filing for Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and Advance Parole (AP) simultaneously.
