General Field: Immunology

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral researcher based in Maryland engaged North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him represent an I-140 petition on his behalf. Equipped with a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering and extensive experience in the field of immunology, we were certain that our client fits to be a proper candidate for the NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval.
Once we commenced building his case, we concentrated on exhibiting the following details in his EB-2 NIW petition case to the USCIS:

  • Firstly, we detailed his research work on targeted immunological control. Cancer is a pertinent issue in the United States, where more than 600,000 people are estimated to die from cancer each year, and his research in this area is of great importance because it directly addresses the global concern of cancer.
  • Moving forward, we highlighted the 35 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of the first- or co-first-authored) and 1 accepted journal article which garnered 291 citations from his colleagues. Also, our client’s published journals have been among the most-cited in the field, establishing the broader implication of his methods and results.
  • We noted that our client had already reviewed the work of others 38 times for highly acclaimed journals, adding to the testimony of him holding a strong ground in this field.
  • Also, we incorporated five recommendation letters in our presentation to bolster our client’s research. He obtained these letters from fellow learned researchers in the field and the below excerpt has been extracted from one of the letters :

“[Our client] is one such researcher who is conducting vital research with regard to understanding the biochemistry of organ transplantation immunology. His efforts are critical to enhancing the abilities of medical experts to increase graft survival in the United States.”

The USCIS was successfully convinced with our client’s presentation depicting the value of this research on the national scale, and he obtained NIW petition approval which moved him one step closer to the Green Card process. We congratulate him on this breakthrough.
