Case Summary:

NAILG has a history of dealing with thousands of clients from every field imaginable. As such, our experts have served to help clients from the field of biomedical engineering too. So, when we got a request from a staff scientist in the area to help him with his NIW or National Interest Waiver, our team was well-prepared for the task. We made a personalized strategy based on our client’s strengths and used his academic and professional documents to furnish his petition letter. These details were as follows:

  • We showed that his proposed endeavor is to continue his development of biomedical sensor systems to generate novel concepts of healthcare and medical sensor systems.
  • We showed that his work was in order to advance knowledge on the human body’s electrical and mechanical biomedical signals and understand the unconscious physiological activity.
  • And that his research is of great importance because it contributes to significant advancements in the global biomedical sensors market.
  • It was significant to show that his research has resulted in 15 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 2 peer-reviewed conference papers, and 8 patents.
  • Additionally, these publications have been cited a total of 386 times according to Google Scholar.
  • His study on the development of a film-type of biomedical sensor for simultaneously detecting mechanical and electrical activity of the heart has been recognized and supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF).
  • Finally, we showed that our client had been able to collect 2 letters of recommendation from other experts in the field, who helped make our case stronger at the USCIS.
  • We made sure that the adjudicating authorities knew that these specific research contributions represent only a subset of our client’s most successful endeavors. These projects are indicative of the overall quality of his research and illustrate his particular expertise and ability to continue contributing significantly to his field and to advancing the proposed endeavor.

Thus, we were able to ascertain that our client’s strongest features did not go unnoticed. By addressing the quantification of human physiological status, our client’s research in the field of biomedical engineering is contributing to further advancements in the biomedical sensor market. Thus, as the above evidence shows, the significance of his research in his field is corroborated by the evidence of peer and government interest in his research.

We are glad to know that we were able to help our client in this process. When we received the NIW approval less than 4 months from the date of filing his petition, we were overjoyed. We wish him all the very best in his future endeavors.
