Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW(National Interest Waiver) petition approval was permitted to a postdoctoral scholar based in California. North America Immigration Law Group investigated his accolades and academic achievements before initiating the attorney-client agreement. Once we confirmed that he was a suitable candidate for the EB-2 visa category, we began preparing a persuasive case on his behalf to be presented to the USCIS. We listed the below-mentioned details in our petition packet:

  • We noted that our client, holder of a doctoral degree in cellular biology and extensive experience in the field of molecular biology primarily focused on developing more efficacious treatments for lung cancer patients by elucidating the mechanism of lung cancer resistance to targeted therapies. Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it contributes to the development of more effective lung cancer treatments in the United States and around the world.
  • At the time of filing the petition, our client had already gathered 112 citations from the 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (two of them first-authored) he published. These numbers further verify the broad respect for him and his resounding research across the field of molecular biology as a whole.
  • We also demonstrated how one of his projects has been supported through funds provided by the French National Research Agency and the Fondation de France. The fact that this research has received funding from these salient governmental agencies in France illustrates the international benefits derived from his work.
  • Experts in the field have provided letters of support confirming how our client’s history of successful research impacts the field, and these accomplishments have well-positioned him to continue advancing his research work. We added four such recommendation letters in his petition dossier. According to one of our client’s recommenders:

“[Client] has also identified new therapeutic strategies to treat these cancers, which is greatly beneficial research to the field and the development of more effective cancer treatments in this nation. For these reasons, I strongly recommend [client be allowed to continue his work in the United States unabated.”

After submitting all the required documents, the USCIS adjudicated our client’s petition for the EB-2 NIW visa category and finally granted him the approval. We thank our client for trusting our law firm for this opportunity and would like to congratulate him on his success.
