Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow in the field of structural biology from China came to North America Immigration Law Group wanting to file her National Interest Waiver (NIW) petition. She held a Ph.D. in biophysics and had been working in the area for several years at the time.

Our team found that her proposed endeavor is to continue using molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, biochemistry assays, and other techniques to advance knowledge of the structure of cell surface receptors. She was working to deepen fundamental understanding of the biological system and pave the way for developing targeted therapeutics to treat diseases. This meant that her research was of great importance because it led to the uncovering of the molecular mechanisms involved in diseases such as cancer, which is a substantial health issue throughout the world.

Significantly, the American population is aging and the incidence of these conditions is increasing in tandem, so researchers like our client who apply their expertise to understanding how these diseases arise and progress are a critical part of the effort to develop drugs that better manage or reverse their effects. So, the journey of proving her merit for the I-140 NIW wasn’t too difficult. Our team looked into her CVs, transcripts, certificates, and letters of recommendation along with a bunch of other documents to confirm her victory. They picked facts from these documents and used them in her petition letter. We said the following:

  • Her research has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them co-first-authored).
  • Her publications have been cited a total of 64 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Detailed descriptions of 3 of her key projects were included as evidence of her contributions to and expertise in the field of structural biology. These project summaries are complemented by expert commentaries that highlight her use of innovative methodologies, the nature of her breakthroughs, and the ways that her unique findings have been applied throughout the field.
  • We also presented evidence of her major funding sources such as the National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and the National Key Research and Development Programmes of China.
  • We also made use of the 2 letters of support she was able to obtain from other experts in her field of expertise.

Once the petition had been complied with and thoroughly revised by our team and the client, we moved to submit it. It had only been 54 days since the filing that we received the joyous news of her case being approved. We are proud of having represented her and we wish her the very best in all future endeavors.
