Case Summary:

A research fellow, an expert in the field of biochemistry hired North America Immigration Law Group to assist him in constructing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his part. We commenced evaluating his professional and academic credentials before agreeing to the contract, and we assessed his proposed research work i.e. to investigate the mechanisms, dynamics, transitional properties, and molecular mechanics of drug-resistant proteins and enzymes to improve the treatment of drug-resistant cancers and produce enzymes for industrial use. His work in this area is focused on proteins linked to breast, colorectal, gastrointestinal, and pancreatic cancer and is squarely aimed at the development of new inhibitor-based therapies.

We noted that his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it produces technical innovations that expand the biochemists’ toolkit, enabling the fabrication of new pharmacological therapies for cancer treatment and enzymes for industrial applications making him a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. To prove his case further, we included the following required details in his I-140 NIW petition docket:

  • We observed that throughout his time working in the field, he has established an imposing record of publication. As evidence of his contributions, we added the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter which garnered 34 citations, reflecting his peers and other researchers who widely rely upon these journals in the field of biochemistry.
  • In further evidence of his acknowledged expertise in the field, we detailed that he has already conducted one review for the highly respected Transactions of the Biochemical Society. This crucial peer-review activity validates our client’s exceptional abilities and proficiency in this area.
  • We have appraised his findings meticulously and to corroborate all of his provided testimonials, we added the five recommendation letters accumulated by our client from other recognized experts in the field. One of the recommenders detailed our client’s work as:

“[Our Client’s] research has a substantial impact on cancer treatment as it supports the development of chemotherapy drugs that are capable of targeting key cellular growth agents during critical stages in reaction processes. His research ultimately improves the efficacy of chemotherapeutic approaches and improves the treatments available for the millions of Americans with cancer.”

The USCIS expended 8 months adjudicating our client’s analysis that contributes to the national effort of improved cancer treatment strategies in the United States, and successfully our client was granted the NIW approval. We thank our client for choosing us for managing his NIW application. Also, we wish him all the best of luck as he strives to persevere in his proposed field.
