Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group has a remarkable way of tailoring petition letters according to our client’s credentials and making it as persuasive as possible to the USCIS. Therefore, when our client, a Ph.D. Student /Graduate Student in the field of molecular biology, hired us to file a NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf. Based on our client’s background, we maneuvered our different strategies in preparing her NIW petition packet, and we incorporated the following details in our presentation:

  • Upon evaluating her educational and professional credits, we noted that our client not only held an M.Sc. degree in animal and dairy science and regenerative bioscience but is also conducting her groundbreaking research to continue building on her expertise with chemosensory organs and efflux pumps, fluorescent spectroscopy, western blot, , chromatography, and genetic code expansion techniques for the prevention of multidrug bacterial resistance which seems to be relevant to reducing the number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Eschericia coli in both animals and humans while also lowering healthcare costs in the United States.
  • In addition, we underlined the great importance of her research since it addresses issues related to both chicken production and antibiotic resistance. She has also published 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 1 book in her field. She acquired a substantial citation record of 60 citations, thereby demonstrating that she has provided independent researchers from around the world with useful approaches to the study of intricate topics within the field of molecular biology. That other researchers invariably look to her methods and findings to inform and guide their analyses; therefore, it indicates that she is well positioned to make further reasonable discoveries in the field of molecular biology.
  • Furthermore, due to her research’s national importance, it has also been supported with funding from both the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, these are the two premier scientific research and funding organizations in the United States. This proves that her efforts are essential to public health. This funding is reserved for research advancing the national interest, including promoting United States economic interests, improving national security, and keeping the United States on the cutting edge of global research, thus, one of her 5 recommenders offers an explanation of the importance of this funding: “Even greater evidence of [client’s] influence comes from the funding of her research by one of the most respected government research institutions in the United States. The work on nano-filtration membrane has been supported by the National Science Foundation, an organization created specifically to promote scientific progress that benefits the United States. The fact that this study received such support shows that her efforts are necessary for achieving the country’s scientific goals.”

In sum, we highlighted that her research contributes to this mission of the organization, as her work promotes better regulation and treatment of poultry feed products for both economic benefit in the United States and improvement of healthcare. Also, her research in multidrug resistant bacteria promotes and aid the healthcare in the United States. Furthermore, the fact that she was being able to secure funding from such competitive sources emphasizes the significance of her research to national interests.

All in all, our client has made important contributions to the field, which gives her research global scope and functionality and these elements aided her well in obtaining her NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. We are thankful to her for her constant trust in our law firm. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
