General Field: Pediatric Nephrology

Case Summary:

An I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition was approved for a research fellow in the field of pediatric nephrology exactly 8 months and 19 days after we filed her NIW petition. When our client approached North America Immigration Law Group, we started evaluating her documents to help her in securing the NIW victory. We confirmed that we could direct her to the national interest waiver after a thorough appraisal of her credentials, and began to gather relevant information about her achievements and research to highlight them in her petition packet. We listed the following details in our presentation:

Publication Record, Citation Count, and Peer-review Experience:
We noted the 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and one conference abstract she published, which altogether amassed 57 citations, demonstrating that these publications are widely acknowledged and relied upon in the field of pediatric nephrology. Also, the results of her study were employed by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation to develop clinical guidelines for treating children, representing a noteworthy government utilization of her research. In further evidence of her professed expertise in the field, we observed that she is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals and has already conducted a review. This review activity verifies her glorified standing in the field.

Research Description:
Most importantly, we detailed our client’s research focuses on identifying risk factors to enhance chronic kidney disease treatment for improved health outcomes and overall well-being in children and adolescent patients. We determined that her research in this area is of great importance because it concerns the well-being of millions of people around the world.

Recommendation Letters:
In addition, we incorporated five recommendation letters signed by her peers to corroborate how her work impacts public health, the pharmaceutical industry, and the medical field here in the U.S. One of the well-regarded professors worded the following statement on our client’s work:

“It is this reality which lends national exigence to [client’s] research into the most efficacious treatments for the different components of kidney disease. Her successful research results not only reflect her unique competence as a scholar but also have a positive influence on the lives and health of thousands of young Americans. It is for this reason that I offer my total support for her continued research presence in the United States.”

We persuaded the USCIS yet once again, and our client got her EB-2 NIW petition successfully approved. With our huge database of successful cases, this is another instance of our team’s hard work to assist our client in getting closer to the green card process. Thus, we would like to congratulate our client on achieving her NIW approval and wish her well in her future endeavors.
