Case Summary:

When a chemical engineering expert from India approached NAILG with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) request, we ensured his success by keeping in mind the previous adjudication record of similar cases. This meant doing a thorough background check for the feasibility of the case and then collecting documents to aid in a smooth approval. Our team documented the following information:

  • His proposed endeavor was to continue his research on developing state-of-the-art drug delivery approaches that cross biological interfaces in order to enable the facile treatment of a wide range of disorders, including neurological disorders, metastatic cancer, and COVID-19.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it greatly advances the development of protein-based therapies for a wide range of medical conditions. His research allows scientists to develop these treatments with greater accuracy and speed, and at lower costs.
  • His work also has broad implications for the United States since according to the Centers for Disease Control, chronic health conditions are responsible for 90% of the nation’s $3.8 trillion in annual healthcare expenditures. Our client’s work promotes better treatments for all of these conditions.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his research has been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the Royal Dutch Shell, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc., the AXA Research Fund, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, U.K., and the U.K.-India Education and Research Initiative, and Genentech.
  • With his knowledge and expertise in fluid dynamics, materials engineering, and interface science, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field and has completed at least 24 reviews to date.
  • His research has resulted in 20 peer-reviewed journal articles (9 of them first-authored), 1 peer-reviewed conference paper, and 1 patent.
  • Not only this but his research has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, these publications have been cited a total of 162 times.
  • Finally, he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing state-of-the-art drug delivery approaches for 8 years.

So, while writing his petition, we used all of the above along with 2 letters from recommending experts who knew his work inside out. These bits of evidence went a long way in getting him the NIW approval quickly and that too without an RFE.
