Case Summary:

“[The client’s] research on analyzing kidney cancer genomics and genetics is especially important considering that total instances of kidney cancer have been growing steadily over the past several decades. Kidney cancer is one of the most common types of cancer for both men and women, with more than 76,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed in the US alone this year. [The client] is engaging in crucial research to better understand the aggressive kidney cancer subtypes that currently have much worse malignancy. In this way, his work holds an invaluable place in advancing the field’s knowledge of kidney cancer to render better prognoses and more effective treatments.”

“[The client] is one of the foremost researchers in the field currently studying cancer biomarker discovery through his development of effective and efficient computational statistical tools that have identified many novel cancer-related biomarker candidates. Considering the importance of biomarkers in helping cancer prognosis, early diagnosis, and effective treatment research, [the client] is a critical researcher in the field of bioinformatics. He has achieved an impressive record of accolades in the field, and the findings of his studies have been applied to progress further research worldwide. The inherent importance of [the client’s] research, his history of successes in the field, and his ongoing commitment to furthering cancer research all mark him as a top talent that the field cannot afford to lose.”

These are valuable observations taken from letters of recommendation that our client from China had received from other experts in the field. Our client wanted to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for which he needed our help. So our team began digging up his academic and professional documents to find the following:

  • His proposed endeavor was to continue his research developing state-of-the-art analytical algorithms for identifying disease signature biomarkers in order to advance early diagnosis and intervention in cancer and other diseases.
  • The importance of his work was apparently immense because it directly addresses the need for more equitable cancer research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) throughout the world.
  • The importance of his work for the United States is that while cancer is a leading cause of death nationally and globally, its financial burden on the United States and its citizens is also significant.
  • We added information about his funding from entities that include the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
  • We also showed that he has completed at least 3 reviews to date.
  • Our research showed that his work has resulted in 8 peer-reviewed journal articles and 2 peer-reviewed conference papers and these publications have been cited a total of 80 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of bioinformatics.
  • Finally, we added detailed descriptions of 3 of his key projects as evidence of his contributions to and expertise in the field of bioinformatics.
  • The petition packet also contained 4 letters of recommendation corroborating the worth of his work for the country and the world.

All of these factors helped fasten up the adjudication process and win him the approval in just 3 months and 6 days. We are proud of having had the opportunity to work with him and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
