Success Stories: NIW Status Confirmed for a Taiwanese Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience without RFE, Credit to Our Team’s Excellent Work


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your service!”

On May 11th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Neuroscience (Approval Notice).

General Field: Neuroscience

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: May 11th, 2022

Processing Time: 2 months, 24 days

Case Summary:

The National Interest Waiver is a subcategory of the EB2 type of nonimmigrant visa granted to those individuals who can prove that their work is of significance to the United States of America. So when we get applicants who want to file an NIW petition, we make sure to look into their academic and professional documents and find information to personalize their petitions. Thus when an expert in the field of neuroscience from Taiwan approached us for her NIW petition, we checked her documents and found the following:

  • Her proposed endeavor was to continue her research into utilizing advanced recording technology to discover principles of sensation and movement with a goal of developing brain-machine interfaces and advancing electrical neuromodulation technology.
  • Her research is significant to the tens of millions of people who have difficulty interacting with their environment due to neurological or physical deficits since brain-machine interfaces and brain-computer interfaces allow people to interact with a device that assists them in performing specific tasks. Her work is directed toward making these devices and technologies even more robust and precise and applying them to additional conditions.
  • Her proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States. She is working to advance a technology that lessens the healthcare burden caused by a number of illnesses, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder, and several additional neuropsychological conditions.
  • Her research has also resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), thus, these papers have been published in one of the top journals in her field, reflecting her peers’ recognition of the value of this research. Her work also accumulated 140 citations according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of neuroscience.
  • Her work has been supported with funding from several institutes contained within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), such as the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), etc.
  • Finally, her work has found support in 4 letters of recommendation written by other experts of which one said:

“…6.8 million children have been diagnosed with ADHD according to a national 2016 survey. These statistics, which include only some of the neuropsychological disorders that impact rule-based decision-making, demonstrate how this issue affects millions of Americans in every age group. The economic cost of care for these disorders is also significant to American families and society. [The client’s] results on rule-based decision-making address a burdensome public health issue in the United States. Her research has revealed information about neural processing and aids in the creation of brain-machine interfaces. [The client] represents an asset to the United States’ efforts to understand and reduce the cost of neuropsychological disorders.”

All of these factors played in her favor and made her case approval possible within 3 months. We are delighted to have been a part of this success story and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
