General Field: Structural Biology

Processing Time: 6 months, 6 days

Case Summary:

A research associate from India approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to represent his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. After going through his credentials, we concluded that his studies are of great value to the United States as they focus on solving the three-dimensional structure of proteins for developing drugs and inhibitors for various diseases.

As the next step, we carefully handpicked the following information to be included in his NIW petition:

  • Our client’s phenomenal publication record of 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored and 3 co-first authored) draws attention to his high standing as a distinguished researcher in the field of structural biology.
  • His citation record of 357 indicates the relevant nature of these studies for other structural biologists in the US and around the world.
  • As a testimony to our client’s credentials, we incorporated letters of recommendation signed by renowned researchers who are familiar with his outstanding work. They urged the USCIS to grant our client EB1A approval in order for him to continue his research in the United States. They also highlighted the importance of our client’s research not just to the US, but to the field as a whole.
  • His contributions to the research community extended to the peer review work that he has conducted for prominent journals in the field. At the time of filing, our client had already conducted 18 reviews for a handful of journals.

We are pleased that our client obtained the national interest waiver—which was adjudicated based on Matter of Dhanasar, the analytical framework for assessing eligibility for ‘National Interest Waivers’— and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of structural biology here in the United States.
