General Field: Cancer Immunotherapy

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of cancer immunotherapy, our client, a postdoc fellow from Nepal, proposes to continue his research on the development of novel immunotherapies for cancer, especially solid tumors. His research in this area is of great importance because it improves treatment options worldwide for cancer patients. This is why, when he asked for our help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we talked to our team and put together the best strategy to follow.

This meant that our team would conduct a background check of the client and an in-depth study of his academic and professional career thus far. Having done so, they would collect data to build his petition to USCIS which would then be reviewed and discussed with the client before being sent to the adjudication bench. We try our best to personalize the petition packet by including every detail of the client’s achievements. Let’s take a look at the things we focus upon for the best results:

  • We made sure that the letter clearly stated the proposed endeavor of the client and the impact it would have on the United States. This was clear in this case because the United States is one of the countries where cancer is a primary threat to health and healthcare spending. Therefore, researchers like him are indispensable for lessening the damaging effects of this disease.
  • We made sure that the petition included the research work and the resultant papers that he had published. We thus showed that his work has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored).
  • We also showed that our client’s work is not performed in some academic void, but has influenced scores of peers who have depended on his papers for their own works. Our client’s work has also gone on to influence his peers and colleagues, having been cited a total of 292 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Most importantly, we try to show whenever possible, the client’s funding information. It is naturally one of the best ways to determine the value of somebody’s work. The investments that our client was able to direct to his study came from 6 different institutions of importance including the National Institutes of Health.
  • We also ensure that every petition carries at least a few letters of support from experts in the field who can corroborate the value of the client’s work. We attached 2 letters of recommendation for this particular client, both coming from sources who knew him via his work and personally.

Thus, our team’s strategic move helped him obtain his NIW approval in spite of the significant delay. We are thankful to him for trusting us through the process.
