Success Stories: Our Tailored Petition Package Helped a Postdoctoral Research Associate from India Secure NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval with No RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for all your help.”

On April 6th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Immunology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Immunology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: North Carolina

Approval Notice Date: April 6th, 2021

Processing Time: 11 months

Case Summary:

Furnished with an MBBS (bachelor of medicine and bachelor of surgery) degree, our client, a postdoctoral research associate, is a highly qualified scientist with comprehensive experience in the field of immunology. He possessed all the skills, including the 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 letter to the editor he published, accumulating 190 citations from independent researchers in at least 22 countries. We deduced that his prolific work got published in the most discerning journals in the field confirming that his work is critical and certainly needed worldwide.

Our client hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing an effective and convincing EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, presenting the aforementioned successes. At the time we were evaluating his credentials, we reviewed his proposed research focusing on clinical and translational research in lysosomal storage diseases and how his work is important to enhance the understanding and treatment of Pompe disease as well as contributing to overall efforts in treating rare diseases. We gathered that his research truly represents a genuine fight against debilitating diseases here in the United States.

Accordingly, we customized our petition packet and included all the said facts and details along with the information that he had already conducted 3 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals, which further establishes his active participation as a judge of the work of his peers, claiming his foundational role and extraordinary ability in the field.

Further substantiating the accumulation of so many citations, proving the utility of his work, his work has also been funded by Sanofi Genzyme and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. As these funding sources seek to improve therapeutic techniques and strengthen translational efficacy in medical research, their financial aid to our client’s research proves the strong need for his continued scientific pursuance in the United States.

Before successfully submitting our client’s NIW petition to the USCIS, we advised him to provide us with a few recommendation letters to fortify his case. Well, he was able to obtain four recommendation letters from other expert researchers in the field, and it was necessary for us to attach them to our petition packet. The below excerpt has been contributed by one of the recommenders:

“Rarely are the efforts of one researcher so directly tied to improved quality of life for patients. However, as the evidence presented above reveals, [client’s] work has substantially strengthened the knowledge base on Pompe disease treatment protocols and established him as an indispensable asset for furthering disease research in the U.S.”

As we have handled to get more than 17,000 successful I-140 approved cases, this case was managed diligently as well. We are pleased that USCIS approved our client’s EB-2 NIW petition without issuing an RFE (request for evidence), which is an encouraging sign for our team’s efficient case preparation. We thank our client for trusting our law firm for his NIW application and now awaits I-140 EB1A approval.
