Case Summary:

A postdoctoral scholar in medical immunology came to the North America Immigration Law Firm for her National Interest Waiver approval. She hailed from Iran and held an M.Sc. in the field. So once our team had recognized her value by making an initial background check, we began working on her petition by collecting some of the following data:

  • Her work in the field was to continue her research on developing novel therapies for Cancer diseases and improving therapeutic outcomes by employing advanced biotechnical tools and genetic manipulation techniques in order to uncover neurodegenerative mechanisms.
  • As an expert in the field of medical immunology, her proposed endeavor was to work on engineering and enhancing T lymphocytes to produce anti-tumoral proteins during radiotherapy in order to better fight cancer.
  • Her research advancing her proposed endeavor was of great importance because it provides innovative new treatments for cancer, one of the leading causes of death worldwide.
  • Her proposed endeavor also had broad implications for the United States since cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., outmatched only by heart disease.
  • Due to its clear national importance, her research has been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • Due to her knowledge and expertise in medical research, oncology, and immunology, she has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals and has completed at least 9 reviews to date.
  • Her research has yielded 20 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored).
  • Not only this but her research has also gone on to influence her peers. That is, these publications have been cited a total of 363 times.
  • We also added detailed descriptions of 5 of her key projects as evidence of her contributions to and expertise in the field of medical immunology.
  • We found that she has pursued research directly related to her proposed endeavor of engineering and developing T lymphocytes for 10 years which had given her superior knowledge of the field.
  • And finally, she obtained 2 letters recommending her work in the field from experts who knew her work and understood its value for the scientific community and specifically for the U.S.

These arguments made for a solid petition winning her the approval only 1 month and 23 days later. We are proud to have obtained this success for her and we wish her every success in the future.
