On June 27th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Fellow in the Field of Biomedical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biomedical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Fellow

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: June 27th, 2023

Processing Time: 5 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

In order to qualify for an NIW petition, the petitioner must also persuasively demonstrate that his or her proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance, and we must highlight that our client has an exceptional ability in the field of biomedical engineering.

Although every NIW case is evaluated based on its unique circumstances, the beneficiary must provide evidence to prove that exemption from labor certification would serve the national interest of the United States.

Thus, when our client, a research fellow in the field of biomedical engineering, approached the North America Immigration Law Group to help him file his NIW petition, our team made sure to gather the necessary data for his NIW petition packet.

  • We noted that he is an expert in biomedical engineering and aims to further his research on advanced microscopy techniques. He hopes to develop methods for deep, wide field of-view and high-speed structural and functional imaging of samples. This research will contribute to the advancement of treatments for brain and bone diseases.
  • Also, the research he is conducting for his proposed project is crucial. The use of advanced microscopy techniques is enhancing the field’s comprehension of the fundamental causes of illnesses and, as a result, is making it easier to develop new treatments.
  • We emphasized that his research has been featured in highly regarded publications within his field, resulting in the publication of 5 peer-reviewed journal articles, with 4 of them being first-authored, as well as 4 conference papers with 3 of them being first-authored. The prestige of his research is further highlighted by the fact that it has been published in top journals within his field, indicating the recognition of his peers. In particular, he has had papers published in at least 2 highly-ranked peer-reviewed journals. Thus, his work accumulated a total of 120 citations.
  • It’s evident that he’s highly knowledgeable in his field and an expert in the topics related to his proposed endeavor. This is supported by the fact that he’s completed at least 30 reviews so far. Being invited to evaluate the work of peers in reputable venues indicates that he’s among the most esteemed researchers in his field.

Based on documented evidence and expert testimony, we have concluded that our client is a highly educated and skilled professional who is dedicated to advancing research in advanced microscopy techniques. This is an important and valuable contribution to the nation. We were successfully able to demonstrate his eligibility and merit for a national interest waiver, resulting in the approval of his petition in just 5 days. We would like to give special thanks to the premium processing service, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to receive expedited processing (within 15 days instead of 9-12 months). We extend our heartfelt congratulations to our client on reaching this important milestone.
