Client’s Testimonial:

“It has been a great pleasure working with your I-140 team.”

On June 28th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Medical Sciences (Approval Notice).

General Field: Medical Sciences

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: Germany

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: June 28th, 2022

Processing Time: 13 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of medical sciences, our NIW (National Interest Waiver) client from Germany wanted to continue her research on determining the associations between the psychological and physiological processes that underlie sleep disturbances in order to improve sleep health and diagnose and treat sleep disorders. It was thus quite evident that the United States would benefit from the continuation of her proposed endeavor. And this was made more apparent by what the experts had to say about her work in the field, such as:

“Overall, roughly 35 percent of people do not obtain enough good, quality sleep, largely due to conditions such as insomnia, leading to a widespread societal and public health burden. The heavy toll that poor sleep takes on humans makes it quite apparent that [the client’s] study of sleep is invaluable for reducing its burden on people around the world.”

“Individuals with untreated insomnia incur greater healthcare costs than individuals without insomnia, leading to greater financial strain. From this information, it is abundantly clear that insomnia and other sleep disorders represent a burden on the United States. Thus, [client’s] study of sleep is a significant achievement in reducing this burden and promoting better health overall.”

On the balance, we were also able to track her professional and academic achievements via her CV, transcripts, certificates, etc. Some of these are shown below:

  • Her research has resulted in 22 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored, 1 accepted for publication) and 1 book chapter.
  • Her publications have been cited a total of 301 times according to Google Scholar.
  • She has been invited to conduct reviews for reputed journals in her field 3 times already.
  • Her work has received several financial aid from national and international institutions of repute for her work in the field. It was evident that her work was indeed valuable to the world from the sheer number of funds (18 funding sources) she has gathered over time.

We are thus glad to know of the success of her I-140 NIW case. Our firm wishes her the best in all future endeavors.
