General Field: Epidemiology

Approval Notice Date: June 13th, 2019

Processing Time: 6 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

Our client for this EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition is a PhD candidate and researcher who conducts research in the ever-expanding field of Epidemiology. With an MS in Biomedical Sciences and extensive experience working in the same field, our client has amassed a wealth of knowledge that allows him to continuously attain successful research results that benefit the United States.

Our client’s specialized research on malaria and helminth infections contribute to an enhanced understanding on how environment and culture affect disease progression and its effective prevention strategies. Additionally, his research works on helminth infections is relevant to studies on parasitic infections in the United States, where millions of Americans develop undetected infections annually. His proposed research is therefore also nationally important. Besides, we submitted evidence for his successful research-35 peer-reviewed journal articles with a total of 615 citations, as well as 27 reviews conducted for multiple highly acclaimed journals. These achievements indicated that his works have not only profoundly benefited the field of epidemiology, but gone on to influence his peers and colleagues.

By detailing his most notable research projects, we have successfully argued that his findings are widely applicable and immensely practical, and it is reasonable to conclude that his future research will yield equally valuable results. The excerpt from a noted expert below can confirm that our client is widely recognized and relied upon in his discipline: “Moreover, the United States requires multidisciplinary researchers dedicated to investigating diseases plaguing society. If the government is dedicated to equipping the country with the best researchers to fight any epidemic, then [Client] is an obvious choice for the task… His research has proven practical value, thereby stressing the importance of maintaining his work in the United States”.

We handled his case with utmost attentiveness and made sure every necessary evidence regarding the significance of our client’s research was presented. His NIW petition was approved in only 6 months and 10 days. We truly appreciate our client for trusting us with the preparation of his case and for giving us an opportunity to be a part of his success story.
