Case Summary:

For this EB-2 NIW case, we worked closely with a Research Fellow who has made substantial contributions to the field of Psychology. Our client has successfully addressed the underlying mechanisms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and has discovered its unique relationship with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The unveiling of this profound insight has led to the improvement of psychological health and has fostered further neurobiological research that is essential to the United States’ healthcare industry. His cutting-edge research has culminated in the authorship of 2 book chapters, numerous conference proceedings, and 10 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts that were published in the top journals of his field. These publications have been cited 77 times by independent researchers worldwide, and he has been consistently invited to present his work at several highly distinguished international conferences, demonstrating the global demand and recognition for his research endeavors.Furthermore, our client’s work has been lauded on several important scientific news outlets, indicative of the relevance of his research to today’s healthcare concerns. The significance of his work to the broader scientific community was endorsed by an independent recommender, who stated, “Many people stand to benefit from the research that [Client] is completing. Though research has been advancing in the neuropsychological and psychopathological study of OCD, the number of experts in this field, incorporating the two disciplines, is still incredibly small and the amount and consistency of the research still leaves much to be desired, especially in light of the current NIH mission to focus on research analyzing cross-diagnostic processes from genes, via neuropsychological and neurobiological factors to phenomenological mechanisms. [Client] is a demonstrated expert as well as critical investigator in this field.” With the extensive and thorough documentation that we provided, we were able to prove that our client’s social and scientific advancements and continued research have substantial merits for our country and the scientific community as a whole, thus he has served the nation to a significantly greater degree than that of others with similar education and experience. We were met with success when his NIW petition was approved in 7 months and 5 days.
