General Field: Biomedical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior R&D Engineer

Country of Origin: Ireland

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ireland

Approval Notice Date: February 12th, 2022

Processing Time: 5 months, 14 days

Case Summary:

Our client, a holder of a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, and working as a senior R&D engineer, intends to continue his research here in the United States in the field of biomedical engineering, developing novel, state-of-the-art medical devices using his expertise in advanced imaging, and medical device design to enhance the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Therefore, he hired us to help him build a customized petition packet for the “National Interest Waiver” (NIW) petition under the EB-2 visa category. We agreed to support him fully in preparing the NIW case petition for which we needed to submit evidence to the USCIS signifying that our client is certainly qualified for a national interest waiver under the analytical framework outlined in Matter of DHANASAR.

We listed the following attributes in our client’s NIW Case Presentation:

  • Our initial focus was on his research’s great importance as it is developing treatments for undertreated types of cardiovascular disease, which are among the greatest threats to health worldwide. Therefore, his continuing work is fundamentally valuable to both his field and society at large and deserves the full support of the United States.
  • Furthermore, his study has received financial support (funding) from several leading agencies, including the Irish Research Council, Science Foundation Ireland and European Research Council. Hence, his research shows great substantial merit and national importance, seemingly relevant to mitigating the health and economic burdens of cardiovascular diseases on the United States and the world at large.
  • In addition, he published 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 8 peer-reviewed, first-authored conference papers in some of the topmost journals, gathering 86 citations from independent researchers around the world.
  • Besides, we noted that his great expertise in the development of medical devices also led him to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals, therefore, he completed at least 1 peer review.
  • Moreover, four of his fellow experts in the field provided additional insight into the merit of this endeavor, and one of his recommenders stated the following:

“… According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every 40 seconds, one United States citizen has a heart attack. [Client’s] research advances our understanding of how to measure the risk of plaque tissue rupture, which assists in the improvement of diagnostic and monitoring methods. As such, his work is greatly beneficial in terms of upholding public health and wellbeing in the United States.”

Overall, we are glad that North America Immigration Law Group once again proved its dedication to helping our clients by customizing their petition packets as per the USCIS’s latest adjudicating process and getting them the desired success. Our client received his NIW approval after 5 months and 14 days we filed for his case. Thus, we sincerely thank him for choosing our law firm and making us an integral part of his NIW success journey.
