General Field: Biotechnologies

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Vietnam

Processing Time: 2 months, 3 days

Case Summary:

An NIW (National Interest Waiver) application requires the petitioner to prove their worth to the country via evidence of nationally-significant research and awards of recognition from institutions and individuals. So when we got a request from an expert in the field of biotechnologies to file her NIW petition, we made sure to prove beyond a reasonable doubt her worth to the nation. We did this by using the following data:

  • Her proposed endeavor is to continue her research on investigating quality control techniques, in vitro diagnostic tests, and antiviral/antibacterial drugs to develop novel approaches for combating emerging infectious diseases.
  • Her research advancing her proposed endeavor is of great importance because it has contributed to understanding how to minimize the spread of SARS-CoV-2, thereby limiting the combined burden of COVID-19 and “long COVID.”
  • Her proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since as of November 8, 2022, the United States has performed 1,132,648,806 COVID-19 tests, the highest number of countries worldwide.
  • Her work in developing and advancing PCR protocols throughout the COVID-19 pandemic thus offered fundamental advances to support this burgeoning and lucrative industry, providing data fundamental to ensure continued success and progress in studying biotechnologies. Her work is therefore vital for the economic health of America in addition to the physical health of its people.
  • Academically, her research has resulted in 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) and 2 preprint articles which have been cited a total of 34 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Not only this but her work found support from 3 recommenders who wrote letters supporting the continuation of her work in the U.S. One of them wrote:

“Considering the influence that her work has had on the field, alongside the inherent merits of her work, which improves testing procedures for infectious diseases, it is clear that [the client] must be permitted to conduct her research in the United States without impediment.”

Additionally, we found that she has pursued research directly related to her proposed endeavor of investigating quality control techniques, in vitro diagnostic tests, and antiviral/antibacterial drugs for 4 years. This has given her the required expertise to continue her research here in the U.S.

When these factors were put together by our team in her petition, it made for a strong case in her favor. We are glad that we could be of assistance to her in this process and we wish her success in her future endeavors.
