On March 26th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Graduate Researcher in the Field of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Graduate Researcher

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: March 26th, 2020

Processing Time: 6 months, 2 days

Case Summary:

A graduate researcher whose research is focused on utilizing the transport mechanisms of nano-sized molecules and colloids to develop chemically-driven motors for biomedical applications, hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him secure EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. After going through his credentials, our team compiled enough documentary evidence that established the merit and national importance of his research.

The information that we included:

We incorporated a detailed description of our client’s research and its great importance because it offers new methods for treating medical conditions using active, chemically-propelled materials/nanomotors. Our client’s work has also made a significant advance in biomedical technology that is applicable to improving cancer treatments using active carriers for directed drug delivery. These studies have resulted in 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them co-first-authored) which have been cited a total of 68 times— an outstanding achievement. We also noted the 8 times our client judged the work of his peers.

Additionally, NAILG argued that our client’s research efforts are contributing to the United States economy and medical sector, and we asked him to procure letters of recommendation which supported our claim. The recommenders whom our client approached were experts in the field who were familiar with his work. They willingly extended their support, and this is a statement extracted from one of the letters:

“[Client] has distinguished himself as an influential scientist in chemical engineering, who is uniquely positioned to sustain ongoing progress in his field. As such, it is my expert opinion that his continued research efforts are of undeniable benefit to the U.S. scientific community.”

Notification of the case approval was finally received after 6 months. We congratulate our client for securing the national interest waiver, and we thank him for choosing us again for his I-485 applications.
