On May 7th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Graduate Researcher in the Field of Biomedical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biomedical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Graduate Researcher

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: May 7th, 2022

Processing Time: 2 months, 29 days

Case Summary:

When preparing the NIW (National Interest Waiver) of a client from Taiwan, we collected the following information from his academic and professional documents.

  • As an expert in the field of biomedical engineering, his proposed endeavor was to continue his research in advancing the state-of-the-art in stem cell and tissue engineering science to develop artificial blood and organs for practical applications in clinical medicine.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it mitigates the global shortage of organ donations. His research developed a novel three-dimensional scaffold for generating liver tissue from mesenchymal stem cells. He has developed a gene delivery platform for directing stem cells to differentiate into specific functional cell types. He successfully applied this technique to tissue repair in the central nervous system.
  • He has already demonstrated the inherent merit of his research by innovating new treatment options for various clinical patients which is why his proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his research has in fact been supported with funding from several federal and state research agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its component organizations the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the MSCRF.
  • He has completed at least two reviews to date and his work has resulted in 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 1 co-authored book chapter, published a total of 190 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of biomedical engineering.
  • He has been pursuing research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing artificial blood and organs for practical applications in clinical medicine for approximately 7 years.
  • At the same time, his work has been supported by letters of recommendation from 2 experts lending to the credibility of his case.

Thus, when his NIW approval came through, we were very happy to have worked with him on this case and made it a victorious one. We are glad that our client can now continue his excellent work in the field without a labor certification or a permanent job offer from an American employer.
