Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Fellow

Country of Origin: Egypt

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Oklahoma

Approval Notice Date: March 12th, 2021

Processing Time: 7 months

Case Summary:

Holder of an M.B.B.Ch. degree, a research fellow based in Oklahoma engaged the skilled services of NAILG to represent his I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. We confirmed his research work in the field of cardiovascular health on continuing the investigation of the role of the brain-heart axis in the development of cardiovascular diseases, as well as the effect of neuromodulation on the axis, in order to develop new therapeutic approaches for heart failure and atrial fibrillation. We noted that his research work in the field has great importance as it improves the understanding and treatment of atrial fibrillation, which is the single most common form of arrhythmia worldwide. Thus, we agreed on filing a strong petition on our client’s behalf as he deserved to achieve the national interest waiver.

Going forward with the package, we listed our client’s blooming research work that has swayed his peers and fellow experts in the field. He had acquired 26 citations from his 9 peer-reviewed journal articles and 5 conference papers. We detailed how our client is also an active member of the scientific community as a peer reviewer and evaluated the work of others 2 times, implying his pivotal role in the field of cardiovascular health.

Furthermore, our client presented six recommendation letters that he garnered from other distinguished researchers in the field. We submitted all the provided testimonies of our client to the USCIS proving that he is an essential asset to the United States. According to one of the recommenders:

“Research that seeks to develop more efficient and cost-effective treatments is of the utmost importance to public health both domestically and internationally. At this stage of his career, [client] has elevated himself above many other researchers in the field…”

With the help of our customized petition packet, we added all the relevant information, and USCIS approved his EB-2 NIW petition without an RFE within 7 months. We would like to thank our client for choosing us in handling his case. We would also like to congratulate him on this turning point.
