Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law in this case had the distinct pleasure to work with a Postdoctoral Research Fellow from Iran working in the field of materials science and the engineering of biomaterials for bone tissue engineering.  He had in-depth knowledge of biodegradable, biocompatible, porous and strong bone-analogous composite materials gleaned from nearly a decade of experience in biomaterials research coupled with a robust background in materials engineering and comprehensive knowledge of laboratory techniques and specialized equipment.  We successfully demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would benefit those in his field, as well as the citizens of the United States at large. In order for his case to be successful, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to his field, including at least 11 peer-reviewed articles published in leading field journals, 2 book chapters, and 9 conference presentations; these publications had been cited 10 times at the time of case filing, which was indicative of a highly restrictive field with a low citation climate.  The following quote from an independent recommender confirms the importance of our client’s work, “[His] investigations have produced simple and composite biomaterial-derived systems, including scaffolds, as well as matrices seeded with therapeutic agents to improve regenerative outcomes. [His] research impacts not only tissue regeneration, but bone-tissue engineering that enables the creation of novel bone analogues materials with ideal physic-chemical, surface, and cyto-compatibility characteristics, enhanced by anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.”  Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW petition was approved in 91 days, despite the fact that he did not have a job in the US at the time we filed his case.
