Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow based in India approached North America Immigration Law Group to aid him in building an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. With a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology and researching the field of oncology, our client was eligible for the NIW visa category. Once we declared that we could head our client to the EB-2 victory, we made certain of all the required testimonies. To fortify his case, we incorporated the following details in our EB-2 NIW petition:

  • Research Outline: Our purpose was to attest to the USCIS that our client is erudite in his field and we detailed his research focusing on the pathophysiology and underlying mechanisms of pancreatic cancer and related diseases in order to improve clinical outcomes and enhance the therapeutic efficacy of treatment techniques for cancer patients. This kind of research has great importance because it accelerates the development of targeted treatment techniques to improve the prognosis of cancer patients in countries throughout the world. We were certain that his insightful research work will benefit the healthcare industry in the United States, and help him secure the national interest waiver petition approved by the USCIS.
  • Peer- Review Experience, Publication, and Citation Count: We demonstrated further that our client not only successfully finished his research, but his work also influenced his peers and acquaintances. According to Google Scholar, his publications have been cited 222 times and have been among the most-referred, establishing that our client’s publications are widely acknowledged in the field of oncology.
    Furthermore, we specified the 11 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored or co-first-authored) and 1 first-authored book chapter, and validating his expertise in the field, we recorded that he had already conducted 10 reviews at the time of filing the petition.
  • Consolidating Recommendation Letters: To corroborate all the attached documents, we advised our client to garner a few recommendation letters, and based on our advice, our client managed to secure 5 recommendation letters indicating our client’s invaluable research work and consisted of statements like:

“[Our client] has set the grounds for the development of more targeted pharmaceuticals for pancreatic cancer patients. His findings are vital to ongoing research on anticancer treatments and methodologies, and his work has helped reduce the overall burden of cancer spending in the United States and worldwide.”

“As his research indicates, [our client] is an indispensable member of the medical research community, and his work has indisputable benefits to the American population..”

As we presented a strong case to the USCIS, within 8months our client got the NIW petition approval. We sincerely congratulate him to qualify for the EB-2 visa category and, we thank him for trusting our law firm for this opportunity.
