Case Summary:

Assessing the documentary evidence and affirming testimony we secured from our client established that he is a Ph.D. in pharmacology and his research identifying novel metabolic targets to treat obesity-associated pathologies evidently has both substantial merit and national importance.

When he approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him secure the NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval, we began evaluating his credentials and discovered the pertinent information to put in his petition packet, therefore, we added the following to our customized petition packet:

  • As an expert in the field of biomedical research, our client’s intended endeavor is of great importance because it addresses the worldwide burden of obesity-related disorders effectively.
  • Throughout his time working in the field, he has built an impressive record of success, including 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored), 1 book chapter (first-authored), 1 cited abstract (first-authored), and 1 patent he published in no fewer than 8 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals.
  • In addition to his successful record, he has completed and published his research in biomedical research, influencing peers with 713 citations. His expertise has led to regular peer reviews for authoritative journals and conferences, with at least 5 reviews completed to date. Thus, his knowledge and expertise in the field have earned him the honor of being invited to conduct peer reviews.
  • Furthermore, his study has received funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH); National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Indeed, his research expands the knowledge base in medical and associated sciences to enhance national health and well-being through an advanced understanding of obesity and viable treatments.

These validities confirmed that his research work has significant value in identifying metabolic nodes for targeting the treatment of the pathological manifestations of obesity and restoring protective immunity. Therefore, his petition was approved just 4 days after we filed his case with the premium processing upgrade. Our law firm is grateful to him for choosing us to represent his I-140 application.
