Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow, armed with Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology associated with North America Immigration Law Group ( to assist her in logging an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition presenting her. Before proceeding with the procedure, we made sure of all the required paperwork and appraised her provided testimonials. We were certain that our client’s exceptional research work will benefit the healthcare industry in the United States, and acquire the national interest waiver petition approved by the USCIS.

To fortify her case, we incorporated the following details in our EB-2 NIW petition pack:

Peer- Review Experience, Publication and Citation Count: We noted that our client not only completed and published the results of her research in the field, but her work has also influenced her peers. According to Google scholar, her publications have been cited 115 times and have been among the most-cited in the field. In order to establish that our client’s publications are widely acknowledged and relied upon in the field of molecular biology, we detailed the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 first-authored, 1 co-first-authored), and she has built an impressive record of publication. To further validate her expertise in the field, we recorded that she had conducted one review as being an active member of the scientific community.

Research Run-Through: Our purpose was to assure the USCIS that our client possesses profound experience in her field and her research concerns on developing methods to identify genetic, proteic, and epigenetic regulation disorders and relevant inflammation caused by the abnormal interaction with the immune system within complex diseases. Utilizing the field’s most advanced research techniques, she has centered her research on the biological and genetic mechanisms at the root of cancer and other autoimmune diseases. This kind of research has great importance because it improves human health.

Attaching Recommendation Letters: To corroborate all the above-stated information true, we advised our client to accumulate some letters of recommendation and abiding by the same, she gathered four recommendation letters from other experts in the field, they stated:

“[Our Client’s] background and considerable capabilities in the realm of molecular biology positions her to create more innovative, sophisticated, and skills-based experimental designs than her peers in the field. Truly, this sets her above the rest. Her research offers new data-driven directions for therapeutics.”

As over 38% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes, the development of anti-angiogenic tumor treatments is imperative to lessen the economic burden of cancer on the American people. Subsequently, the retention of [client] as an anti-cancer researcher working in the field of molecular biology is directly aligned with the national health of the United States.”

After months of rigorous correspondence with our client and USCIS, we successfully got our client the NIW petition approval. We earnestly congratulate her to qualify for the EB-2 visa category as this moves her one step closer to the Green Card. We thank her for trusting and working with us.
