Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate in natural product chemistry from Nepal came to North America Immigration Law Group seeking help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Since our firm has experience with thousands of clients, we know what it takes to win the approval of the USCIS. So, our team joined hands with the client in culling out any relevant information from his academic and professional career thus far. This was then utilized in writing his petition letter, while copies of the transcripts, certificates, and letters of recommendation were attached to his petition packet. It was no surprise that his case was approved in a very short period of time, thanks to our team’s efforts.

Looking back at his petition, we can say that the following information stood out:

  • His proposed endeavor was to continue utilizing his expertise in advanced chromatographic techniques, chemical composition, isolation, identification, and biological activities to develop state-of-the-art natural drug discovery approaches.
  • He wanted to do this in order to identify natural products for treating various ailments, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it aids in the development of novel treatments for people living with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease.
  • He has also completed at least 6 reviews to date
  • His research has resulted in 33 peer-reviewed journal articles (24 of them first-authored).
  • His publications have been cited a total of 419 times.
  • Furthermore, his study has received funding from the National Research Foundation of Korea and is being funded by the National Institutes of Health and Agricen Sciences.
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing natural drug discovery approaches for 7 years.
  • He has 4 letters of recommendation to his name, one of which had the following quote:

“Drugs derived from natural sources have been reported as having fewer adverse effects and lower toxicity than synthetic drugs, which makes them an important research avenue within natural products chemistry. [The client] is producing strong scholarship within this research area, and furthermore, the drug leads he investigates have clear implications for health conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes, depression, and anxiety, which are all serious causes of disease burden in the United States.”

This made it evident that his proposed research on developing natural drug discovery approaches therefore has substantial merit and is of clear national importance. His education, experience, expertise, record of publication and citation, and history of successful research in the field all helped indicate that he is well-positioned to advance the proposed endeavor. These facts thus established that it is beneficial to the United States to waive our client’s requirements of a job offer and labor certification. We are proud of having represented him in this case and we wish him the best.
