Success Stories: Our Team’s Untiring Efforts Results in a Quick NIW Victory for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Virology from China


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks for all the help.”

On March 30th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Virology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Virology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Georgia

Approval Notice Date: March 30th, 2022

Processing Time: 4 months, 4 days

Case Summary:

The EB2-NIW or National Interest Waiver petition demands the applicant to show an official academic record showing that one has a degree, diploma, certificate, or similar award from a college, university, school, or other institution of learning relating to one’s area of exceptional ability. The approval of the NIW petition from the USCIS means a labor certification waiver along with a job offer waiver for the applicant. But, one has to give clear proof that their work is of national importance to the United States.

So when we got a postdoctoral fellow from China wanting to file his NIW petition, our team looked into his academic and professional documents to find the following evidence of his nationally advantageous research:

    • He is an expert in the field of virology, and his proposed endeavor is to continue his investigation of influenza virus evolution and pathogen-host interaction to characterize newly emerged strains of influenza virus in order to improve vaccine design and antiviral drug development.
    • This research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it expands our understanding of how influenza viruses develop and spread across different species and between different subjects.
    • Due to its clear national importance, his research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health and the United States Department of Agriculture. Furthermore, his study has received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Major State Basic Research Development Program of China (973 Program). His study on the influenza D virus in cattle has been recognized and supported by the National Institutes of Health and the French National Research Agency (ANR).
    • He has completed at least one review to date.
    • His research has resulted in 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored).
    • These publications have been cited a total of 182 times according to Google Scholar.
    • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of investigating influenza virus evolution and pathogen-host interaction to characterize newly emerged influenza virus strains in order to improve vaccine design and antiviral drug development for 12 years.

All of these facts helped us put forth a strong case in our client’s favor. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our client for his trust and for the patience he showed while working with us. We also wish him the very best in all future endeavors.
