On December 9th, 2020, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Graduate Research Assistant in the Field of Biomedical Sciences (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biomedical Sciences

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Graduate Research Assistant

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: December 9th, 2020

Processing Time: 14 months, 23 days

Case Summary:

With an M.S. degree in microbiology and pursuing a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences, undoubtedly our client exhibits the ability to advance his research in pulmonary biology. When he contacted North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we commenced administering his educational and professional credentials. Gleaned from his research summary, we observed that his finding is of great importance to public health in the United States..

Our objective was to present to the USCIS that these facts benefit the United States and our client’s national interest waiver petition should be approved. Therefore, we highlighted a few key points supporting our case:

  • We underlined our client’s publications i.e. have been cited 43 times from the eight peer-reviewed journal articles (two of them first-authored), thereby indicating that his publications are broadly recognized and most-cited in the field of biomedical sciences.
  • Moreover, our client is an active peer reviewer for the distinctly acclaimed journals as well, and he has conducted one review. Only well-positioned experts in their field are summoned to perform important review work, hence this further demonstrates his important standing in the field.
  • To propel the built case, we asked our client to connect with fellow experts in the field and provide additional insight into the merit of his endeavor. Accordingly, we got five recommendation letters acquired by him incorporated in our petition file, one of whom contributed the below-mentioned words:

“More than just providing this invaluable information, [client] has provided new therapeutic targets for his fellow researchers. Without his research, those working in the field of biomedical sciences would have a much more limited understanding of this complicated interplay.”

Given the considerable expert understanding required to fulfill such a position, we were successful in convincing the USCIS that our client’s role in this area reflects his vital role in the field of biomedical science. With that, our client received the EB-2 NIW petition approval and we congratulate him as he continues progressing on this milestone.
