Case Summary:

A senior research fellow based in Massachusetts hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition representing him. Before furnishing our client’s case, we assessed his proposed research work in the field of cell biology which focused on molecular targets and signaling pathways that are required for faithful cell division. His research in his area of expertise appeared to be of great importance because it provides important data on understanding the development of cancer. After evaluating his provided testimonies, we were determined to drive him to NIW victory. To confirm the evidence to the USCIS, we added all the necessary documents in his EB-2 petition packet:

  • We noted that he had already achieved 126 citations from the 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored and 1 co-first-authored) he published. We also described his research, methods, and results along with his publications which have inspired other well-known experts in the field. Furthermore, we detailed that our client is an eminent member of the scientific community as a peer-reviewed and administered 20 reviews, denoting his distinctive position in the field of cell biology.
  • Moving ahead, we discerned our client’s research work, which has been supported by funding from leading agencies. These grants include funding from the National Institutes of Health, which financially supports research and directly addresses critical problems in cell biology. Thus, these funds demonstrate the importance and need of our client’s research continuation in the U.S.
  • We also added five recommendation letters in his petition packet, collected from fellow specialists. One of the recommenders described his work as:

“[Our client’s] research relates to the cellular mechanisms that underpin diseases affecting a significant portion of the American population…The role that cell biology plays in such a wide range of diseases that affect the US underscores the necessity of his work in the field.”

Our diligent team convinced USCIS of our client’s I-140 application, and soon he was granted the EB-2 NIW approval, moving our client one step closer to the green card process. Our team at NAILG would like to thank him for allowing us to be a part of his success story and congratulate him on this quantum leap.
