Case Summary:

An expert in the field of molecular biology from Brazil came to North America Immigration Law Group seeking help with her NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. So, our team began working on the case at once after countersigning the retainer agreement. Our team collected data from her documents to prove that her work was indeed worthy of the country’s support. We proved this by personalizing her petition with the following details:

  • Her proposed endeavor is to continue investigating RNA and RNA binding proteins implicated in cancer initiation and development in order to advance cancer treatment, diagnosis, and prognosis.
  • Her research advancing her proposed endeavor is of great importance because it provides alternative treatments to chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, the most common cancer treatments currently in use.
  • Due to its evident national importance, her research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation.
  • Her research has resulted in 13 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored).
  • Her publications have also been cited a total of 430 times according to Google Scholar showing that her work is relevant to the field and is used by her peers.
  • We also entered detailed descriptions of 4 of her key projects as evidence of her contributions to and expertise in the field of molecular biology.
  • At the same time, she has completed at least 9 reviews to date for national and international magazines of repute.
  • Finally, her work has been supported by 2 recommenders who were experts in her field too.

All of these pieces of evidence helped us build a solid petition for her winning the NIW approval only 2 months and 5 days later. We are proud to have worked with her and we wish her all the very best in her future endeavors.
