On August 27th, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Field of Immunology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Immunology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: August 27th, 2018

Processing Time: 11 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

An India-born postdoctoral research fellow based in Texas received EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval merely 11 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed the petition. The swift adjudication of our client’s case was because she opted for Premium Processing (PP), which is a paid option offered to certain I-140 categories to have the USCIS take action on the I-140 petition within 15 calendar days.

Since EB-1A is one of the toughest I-140 categories, we made sure that we thoroughly presented our client’s various achievements in a clear and concise manner. To start, we pointed out the profound implications of our client’s research. With a Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmacology, our client is a highly qualified scientist with extensive experience in pharmacology, molecular biology, immunology, nephrology, genetics, and physiology. This strong academic background has laid the foundation for her current position as a postdoctoral research fellow. Her work involves planning and conducting research studies of the immune-genetic pathways of chronic kidney disease and stroke in hypertension. As evidence of her research success, our client’s work has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter, which have been extensively cited for more than 137 times.

Her fellow expert in the field also provided insight into the importance of her ongoing work: “[client’s] research therefore plays a critical role in improving diagnostic and treatment approaches for patients with hypertension, which is a major problem in the United States. The United States can ill afford to lose a researcher of [client’s] caliber, especially considering the significant benefits her research brings to the field of cardiovascular genetics as a whole. As such, it is within the interests of the United States to continue to preserve a place for [client] in the domestic research community”. It is worth noting that these words are from a scientist who does not know our client personally, but rather are familiar with our client’s work through relying upon her research works.

We at North American Immigration Law Group (NAILG) worked diligently to put together a solid case for our client. With the experience of over 10,000 approved I-140 cases, our team smoothly presented all the essential details of her innovative research and made sure the USCIS see her immeasurable importance. We really appreciate our client for trusting us with the preparation of her case and for giving us an opportunity to be a part of her success story. We wish her all the best for her future endeavors as she continues to advance the field through fundamental and applied researches.
