Success Stories: A Scientist from Nepal Achieved NIW Approval in the Field of Molecular Biology with 43 Citations


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much. I really appreciate your help throughout the process.”

On April 7th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Scientist in the Field of Molecular Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Molecular Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Country of Origin: Nepal

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: April 7th, 2021

Processing Time: 7 months

Case Summary:

An NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition got approved for our client, a scientist in the field of molecular biology exactly 6 months and 26 days after we filed his NIW petition. When he approached us, we advised him of a list of required documents for evaluation before taking his case and as soon as he mailed us his package, we started reviewing his testimonies. We made sure of all his successes and achievements in the field and articulated the petition packet in a best-customized manner to persuade USCIS. With our extensive experience over the years, we have specialized in devising our clients’ cases in such a way that they can get their green card success sooner. In this case, we did it by highlighting our client’s proposed research and the corresponding accomplishments.

Qualification & Research Description: We noted that our client is a holder of a Ph.D. in molecular biology, microbiology, and biochemistry and certainly qualifies as a member of the professions holding an advanced degree. Most notably, we detailed his research focusing on utilizing cellular biology techniques to create artificial fish meat from isolated fish cells and advance the study of molecular mechanisms involved in cancer to improve sustainability in the fish and meat industries and enhance the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs. We learned that his research in this area is of great importance because it reveals underlying molecular processes underlying oncogenesis and it reduces the risk of foodborne illness transmission.

Publication Record, Citation Count, and Funding Grants: We outlined the 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored) and 1 conference abstract he published, which amassed 43 citations, signifying that these publications are well-proclaimed and highly regarded by other molecular biology experts and the global scientific community. In further evidence of his expertise in the field, we observed that he has also received funding grants from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of General Medical Sciences. Funding from these leading agencies is highly competitive, as only around 20% of all applications are successful. Thus, the selectiveness of this funding confirms that our client is among an elite group of molecular biologists in the United States.

Recommendation Letters: As the significance of his work in the field is corroborated by the evidence of government interest and peers in his research, we incorporated five recommendation letters provided by our client, signed by his peers to prove how his work enhances the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs which is vital for improving the sustainability of the United States fishing industry as well as for optimizing the treatment of cancer. Therefore, the following statement has been stated by one of his recommenders:

“The safe and sustainable production of seafood is a national goal, and the relevance and timeliness of [client’s] work contribute towards this goal. His study of cellular biology and tissue engineering methods represents a great breakthrough in the field which directly relates to the environmental and health goals in the U.S., and the support of his research serves significant benefits to the research community.”

Thrivingly, our client received his EB-2 NIW petition approval without any obstacles. Once again with great pleasure, our team’s hard work to assist our client has borne the fruitful result. Thus, we would like to thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group ( to represent his EB-2 NIW application and congratulate him for advancing in his proposed project.
