Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) helped a postdoctoral fellow from Germany acquire EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. Our client’s research focused on immune system development and the modifiers that impact inflammatory disease progression. We worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research in her area is of great importance because immunology is a vital subject of scientific study that impacts nearly all other branches of medical science. Therefore, her work has contributed significantly to the field of immunology, and her research has uncovered a number of pivotal details related to human biological system responses.

Drafting the Petition:

While preparing her NIW case, we looked at our client’s educational and professional qualifications and included what we learned in the petition packet drafted by us. We noted that she received a Ph.D. in Immunology and had an M.Sc. in molecular and cellular biology. This was adjudged by the 753 citations accumulated from her 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter.

Letters of Recommendation:

The NIW petition received a boost from the recommendation letters contributed by other distinguished experts in the field. These letters detailed our client’s academic achievements and research projects, and shed light on the highly urgent nature of her efforts in aiding the United States’ medical science sector. Endorsing our client’s continued stay in the country one recommender wrote: “Our immune system is our first line of defense against illness and infection and its strength determines human life span and quality of life. Research in immunology is of the utmost importance, and [client] has played in an important role in providing the field with sophisticated methods for addressing healthcare needs.”

We are delighted that our efforts led to her NIW approval in less than 7 months. We thank our client for trusting our services and retaining our law firm for her I-485 application.
