Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval was granted to a postdoctoral scientist based in California. North America Immigration Law Group reviewed his accolades and academic achievements before beginning with the retainer agreement. Once we established that he was a suitable candidate for the EB-2 visa category, we started preparing a winning petition on his behalf to be presented to the USCIS. We incorporated the below-mentioned information in our petition packet:

  • We noted that our client held a DSc in genetics/molecular biology and extensive experience in the same field focusing on uncovering the genetic mechanisms that influence aging and regulate immunity against bacterial pathogens in order to develop new medications for treating infections. We aimed to prove to the USCIS that his intended research is of great importance because it provides greater insight into how the nucleolus, an organelle in the nucleus, affects the aging process.
  • We detailed the 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) he published, altogether accumulated 150 citations. These numbers verify the originality and significance of his methods and results in the field of molecular biology.
  • Moreover, we argued the significance of our client’s work in his field is corroborated by the evidence of peer interest in his research. In further evidence of his acknowledged expertise in the field, we mentioned the 17 times he reviewed the work of fellow researchers as a peer-reviewer for highly acclaimed journals, which demonstrates his elevated standing in the field.
  • We also elaborated his project summaries which are complemented by fellow experts, highlighting our client’s use of innovative methodologies, the nature of his breakthroughs, and the ways that his unique findings have been applied throughout the field. To corroborate the above-stated, we added four such recommendation letters in our petition dossier. The below-mentioned excerpt is from one of the letters:

“[Client’s] work, which identifies new drug targets for killing bacteria, is of particular impact to the United States. His efforts are a true accomplishment in the ongoing fight against bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The evidence of his research and citations make it clear that he is one of the leading scientists in his field.”

The USCIS adjudicated our client’s I-140 petition for 8 months and finally bestowed him the approval without an RFE (Request for Evidence). We thank our client for trusting our law firm, and we would also like to congratulate him on this accomplishment.
