Case Summary:

Our client earned an M.Sc. in biomedical engineering from a well-known university in 2022. To prove his qualifications, he submitted copies of his diploma and transcripts. As a professional with an advanced degree, he is highly qualified in the field of biomedical engineering. He aims to continue his research on using microfluidics, organ-on-chip, and 3D bioprinting techniques to develop novel tissue engineering models for the lymphatic and ophthalmic systems. This research will help identify therapeutic targets for diseases, and address the growing demand for tissue engineering solutions and the prevalence of lymphatic and ophthalmic diseases.

Our client started looking into applying for a permanent residency status because this would align better with his career path. Though he was a little familiar with the green card process, he still approached the North America Immigration Law Group to discuss the National Interest Waiver program under the EB-2 category. Before we proceeded with his case, we delved deeper into his research work, which has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed journal articles, two of which he authored, and one that he co-first-authored. He has also presented his research in 1 conference, filed 2 patents, and has 2 patent applications. We noted that his research has been published in top journals in the field of biomedical engineering, which reflects his peers’ recognition of the value of his research. He has also published papers in no fewer than two highly-ranked peer-reviewed journals.

Also, our client’s research work has been cited 33 times according to Google Scholar, which demonstrates that his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of biomedical engineering.

Besides, he has completed at least 3 reviews to date, which is an indication that he is highly knowledgeable in the field and considered an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.

We were also impressed to learn that his work has received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the National Key Research and Development Program of China (NKPs). Therefore, his research indeed advances key technologies, including applications in health and technology commercialization, through his innovative work with 3D-printed graphene structures.

After going over all of the aforementioned material, we made sure to assist him in getting his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approved. For our client’s NIW application, North America Immigration Law Group has put together a compelling petition package. Once more, the hard work and dedication of our team paid off. Due to his experience, leadership, and subject-matter expertise, we confirmed that our client is well-positioned to pursue this task in the United States, thus his well-crafted NIW petition packet was successful. Because of the expedited services provided by USCIS, we were also able to assist him in obtaining his EB2-NIW visa approval in just 7 days. We take great pride in having helped our client attain this wonderful accomplishment.
