Case Summary:

An attending gastroenterologist and hepatologist contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to support him in documenting an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client has a Doctor of Philosophy in molecular genetics and extensive experience researching the field of Gastroenterology. After confirming that he is qualified to be a suitable candidate for this visa category, we foregrounded our client’s scholastic accolades in our petition pack to strengthen his case:

  • Research Background: Our client’s affirmed endeavor is on elucidating and characterizing novel treatment options for patients who suffer from gastrointestinal diseases, particularly inflammatory bowel diseases. His research work is of great importance because of its value to research focused on preventing and treating diseases caused by inflammation in the intestinal lining, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), liver disease, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and many other leading causes of death around the world.
  • Publication Record, Citation Count, and Peer-Review: Our client has built an impressive record of publication and his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of gastroenterology. As evidence of his contributions, we have detailed the 11 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 encyclopedia chapter, all these garnered 667 citations. Also, we recorded that he had conducted 14 reviews, establishing that he is well-positioned in the field of gastroenterology.
  • Recommendation Letters: We further included two recommendation letters signed by other experts in the same field who were familiar with his research work. It was imperative that we included letters of recommendation into the presentation. Collectively, both the recommendation letters clearly expressed the benefits of allowing a researcher of our client’s caliber to work in the United States.

We were triumphant in getting our client his NIW approval by pursuing the USCIS, that his research holds significant value for the U.S. medical industry and overall public health. We thank our client for trusting our law firm for managing his NIW application.
