Case Summary:

Another exceptional client that Chen Immigration Law Associateshad the pleasure of working with is a Plant Molecular Biologist from Nepal with a specialization in plant molecular biology and plant genomics. This client wished to continue his research dedicated to genetic optimization of crops. This is a matter of critical importance to our nation’s food industries and the related sector of the economy. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in his field, but the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of biotechnology and horticulture, including 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in leading journals, which garnered 31 citations by international scientists and researchers. This is an admirable record compared to that of his peers in the field of biotechnology and horticulture. Of his accomplishments, one of the independent recommenders remarked: “Dr. X has considerable skill in obtaining and manipulating new gene lines in rice, chili peppers, and cotton that incorporate useful genes for improving crop and vegetable quality. In that same vein, he also has experience in the complicated task of gene silencing, which seeks to eliminate undesirable characteristics in those same crops and vegetables. The value of these skills cannot be overstated as the need to secure abundant, nutritional food sources becomes more urgent.” Through extensive documentation, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates successfully argued that our client will serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW application was approved in 1 month.
