Case Summary:

The North America Immigration Law Group regularly represents foreign nationals in applying under the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) visa category. In this case, an assistant professor in the field of cell biology has been approved. The client has granted permission for our law firm to share her story in order to encourage others who may be considering filing under the NIW to successfully obtain a green card or permanent residency in the U.S.

There are several advantages to submitting an NIW case before acquiring a green card. The NIW is one of the alternatives under U.S. immigration law for attracting highly skilled individuals whose work has substantial merit and is of national importance. In contrast to most employment-based categories, the NIW category does not require an application from the petitioning employer. The NIW category eliminates the usual need to obtain a labor certification if it is accepted. Our client requested that we put together a solid NIW petition package on her behalf, recognizing that the North America Immigration Law Group has filed NIWs for our clients and has more than 32,000 approved cases under the firm’s belt.

Thus, we as a team assured her that we would include all the relevant information in her petition packet to help her secure the national interest waiver. We started with:

    Our NIW Client’s Research Background

In the field of cell biology, the client has established an excellent track record. In her position as an assistant professor, she has led the way in the field by developing instruments to study cell behaviors and advancing her research on cytoskeletal structure and function to comprehend their roles in physiological and pathophysiological states. These advancements have made it possible to develop treatments for conditions like ciliopathies, cancers, and age-related disorders.

In addition, her study has received funding from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). This funding supports scientific research in all sectors and supports programs that encourage innovation, technology, and scientific achievements. Because it advances both the economy and public health globally, our client’s work is therefore extremely significant.

    Our client’s Impressive Track Record

The client’s research and work have been published in various professional publications. She has presented her work in some of the top publication venues in her field which has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 2 book chapters, reflecting her peers’ recognition of the value of this research.

Besides, she is ranked #8 in Life Sciences & Earth Sciences (general) by the Google Scholar tool and has publications published in the highly regarded peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports, which has an impact factor of 4.996.

On top of that, her study has a wide range of practical applications. In between finishing and publishing the outcomes of her in-field research, her work has also influenced her peers in the field. For instance, the fact that 39 citations have been obtained for her articles shows how well-known and dependable they are in the field of cell biology.

    Final Conclusion

The United States benefits greatly from the creativity and expertise of highly skilled foreign nationals who come to the country through the EB2 NIW category. These talented individuals like our client contribute to the nation’s growth and help maintain its position as a global leader in technology and innovation.
