Case Summary:

Our client, a postdoctoral fellow holding a Ph.D. in biology-microbiology, approached North America Immigration Law Group as he was confident that our firm would support him in achieving his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. According to our services, we recommended that he submit further evidence in addition to his letters of support so that we could move this case ahead. Consequently, after looking over his credentials, we were genuinely impressed and decided to forward his case to USCIS for additional consideration.

Therefore, we laid out a unique petition packet for his NIW case and mentioned the following details:

  • One of the leading aspects we noted was his research into microbiology, focusing on elucidating bacteriophages’ bactericidal mechanisms and beneficial interactions with the human gut microbiome in order to advance the use of bacteriophages as novel therapeutics, to develop effective strategies for combating antimicrobial resistance and to modify the gut microbiome. We deduced that his intention to continue his innovative research in his area of extraordinary ability benefits the global economy and public health.
  • Moreover, we discussed the 1,012 citations accumulated from 36 peer-reviewed journal articles (17 of them first-authored), and 1 book chapter, he published in no less than 14 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Thus, our client has not only completed and published the results of his research in the field, but his discoveries have also gone on to influence his peers.
  • Also, he has conducted at least 21 reviews to date. It is therefore evident that he is considered highly competent in his field and an expert on topics related to his proposed project.
  • Finally, we showcased that his research was financially supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, which was established to promote diverse scientific disciplines with the goal of advancing fundamental knowledge, technological innovation, and interdisciplinary studies, and therefore confirms that our client’s work supports his projected undertaking and provides more proof of his previous achievement in microbiology.

Because of the Premium Processing service upgrade, our client was able to acquire his I-140 NIW approval in just 7 days, thus we are thrilled that he trusted us to handle his I-140 NIW petition and be a part of this success story. We are happy that, once again, the hard work and dedication of our team in our client’s case paid off, and that we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s achievements in the field of microbiological research align with the current goals of the United States and highlight the importance of his continued research. We wish him well as he makes progress in his chosen area of study.
