Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was hired by a researcher from India to help him in filing for an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our client was well aware that we specialize in handling employment-based immigration visas, thus, we thoroughly evaluated his credentials before taking his case. Initially, we observed that our client qualifies as a member of the professions holding an advanced degree, a Ph.D. in structural biology, and extensive experience in the same field intending to continue his research on diseases and therapeutic proteins’ regulatory mechanisms to create treatments for infectious and non-infectious diseases. After a careful assessment of his qualification and professional background, we were sure that he is a good fit for the EB-2 visa category.

Our objective was to outline the broad implications his research has for the development of blood plasma protein therapeutics. Blood plasma based protein therapies are currently being used to treat a host of diseases including acute respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis, hepatitis, and multiple sclerosis. Since the United States government has specific public health objectives related to several diseases that are amenable to gelsolin treatment, our client’s proposed research on diseases and therapeutic proteins’ regulatory mechanisms to create gelsolin-based treatments is relevant to treating disease and achieving American public health objectives.

Also, we detailed the 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 2 patents he published, which altogether garnered 142 citations. Many of his papers have been among the most cited in the field, exhibiting both the originality and authenticity of his methods. Besides, we observed the 13 times he reviewed the work of his peers as a peer-reviewer for highly acclaimed journals, revealing his talent for conducting important peer-reviews in the field of structural biology.

We advised our client of USCIS’s latest trends in adjudicating the NIW cases, and how we could utilize a few recommendation letters from his fellow experts to make his case stronger. Therefore, he was successful in acquiring two such letters of support from well-known professors from India as well as from the U.S. Both of them recounted our client’s research and accomplishments in detail and established the urgent need for his research continuation here in the United States.

Gladly, we proved that his research is an integral component of the contemporary structural biology field and after 13 months and 10 days of deliberation, the USCIS approved our client’s NIW case. We are delighted that our team’s efforts paid off, and despite a long wait, our client cooperated with us throughout the process. We truly thank him for choosing us for his I-140 application and congratulate him on this great accomplishment.
