Case Summary:

With a great track record of accomplishment in the field of biotechnology and the fact that our client’s proposed research endeavor has applications in the field’s advancement—biotechnology is officially recognized as a critical and emerging technology, therefore, we deduced that his work is essential to maintaining and advancing the United States’ technological leadership.

When our client approached us to prepare a strong NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we thoroughly reviewed our client’s qualification background, a holder of a Ph.D. in pharmacy and focusing on utilizing biotechnological research techniques paired with various molecular, pharmacological, and microbiological research techniques to discover novel drugs for the treatment of non-communicable diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, we concluded that his research is significant to the enhancement of drug efficacy and efficiency, the development of therapeutics for non-communicable diseases, and the reduction of economic burden.

As a result, we made sure to highlight some of the important elements in his NIW petition packet in order to successfully advance his case for a national interest waiver:

  • We noted that his specialized research also has broad implications for the United States as his project involving NCDs is imperative to U.S. healthcare and accelerates the development of NCD therapeutics to reverse symptoms and alleviate healthcare and economic burdens.
  • He also received funding support from the esteemed King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, Saudi Ministry of Education, in recognition of the significance of his work nationally. This validates his research and shows that his discoveries regarding novel therapeutic agents contribute to the advancement of medical science.
  • Moreover, his research has resulted in 91 peer-reviewed articles, 1 first-authored patent, and 1 first-authored book chapter, altogether gathering 808 citations from many other experts in the field of biotechnology.
  • In the field of biotechnology, he is regarded as a leader because of his accomplishments and level of skill. Frontiers of Chemistry has had him as its principal guest editor. Among other duties, guest editors are expected to edit collections of articles related to their research, expand their network and work with top researchers worldwide, use sophisticated impact metrics to track impact in real-time, and ensure quality through thorough, open, and quick peer review. He has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews and completed at least 50 reviews to date.

Considering our client’s study, which is of great importance because it majorly advances the global biotechnological market and the manufacturing of drugs. Our team at North America Immigration Law Group worked hard to prepare a strong NIW petition on behalf of our client. With more than 32,000 approved cases under our belt, we were able to smoothly present all of our client’s relevant research information. We are thrilled that our client’s NIW was approved in just 22 days with the help of USCIS’s premium processing service.
