Case Summary:

Less than 6 months after the North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed a customized EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for an Iranin research assistant specializing in medical robotics, USCIS granted the approval of this I-140 petition.

We put together our client’s NIW petition first by establishing a clear understanding of his professional accomplishments and research findings. With a master’s degree in computer science, our client has made major contributions in developing new surgical robots and medical devices, particularly developing data-driven algorithms for novice surgeon training and feedback control platforms, which could benefit as many as 50 million patients experiencing post-surgery complications worldwide. As an expert in the field of medical robotics, our client has assessed the work of his peers for 3 times, and has published 2 peer-reviewed journal articles, 7 peer-reviewed conference articles, and 1 cited and licensed United States patent application which have collectively been cited 48 times.

Apart from listing his documentary evidence in the petition letter, 6 recommenders had also provided testimonials to attest our client’s influence in his professional field. One of the recommenders stated: “[Client] has become a notable figure in the field of medical robotics with publications in prestigious conferences and journals including (…). [Client]’s record of publication demonstrates his extensive skillset as a researcher and shows that he has the insight required to develop and pursue new concepts that are relevant and interesting to others in the field”.

The approval of this NIW petition is yet another example of our firm’s dedication towards helping all our clients move closer to green card success. With over 15,000 certified approved I-140 cases, there is no denying our team has a good amount of first hand information regarding the USCIS adjudication trends. We congratulate our client for securing NIW approval and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for US permanent residency.
