Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) was approached by a postdoctoral researcher from Taiwan to document an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. With a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and many years of experience conducting his cutting-edge research, we thoroughly reviewed his credentials before taking his case. Unquestionably, our client exhibited the skills to advance in the field of chemical engineering, which has broader implications for a significant issue facing the medical field in the United States. Thus, we proceeded with articulating his petition packet by including all the required information such as:

  • Research Description & Funding– We detailed that our client proposes his research on chemical engineering, studying antibody stability, including aggregation and viscosity properties, through computational and machine learning studies. His research in this area is of great importance because it improves medical responses to public health issues including those posed by antimicrobial-resistant diseases. Hence, his proposed research is relevant to designing alternative treatments for antimicrobial-resistant diseases, both in the United States and worldwide, through the development of antimicrobial peptides. Moreover, his research has been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). This funding aims to improve public health in the U.S. through research, while the goals are to support the economy and improve national security while maintaining leadership through research.
  • Publication & Citation Count– We specified the 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them first-authored and 1 of them co-first-authored) he published in no fewer than 3 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. He has thus authored 1 paper that ranks among the top 10%, and 1 paper that ranks among the top 20% most-cited articles across the entire field for chemistry for their respective years of publication, which altogether accumulated 124 citations. Out of two of his recommenders, one contributed the following statement, “I cited [client’s] work in an article, which was published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences. I used his radius work to determine effective methods for studying protein-protein interactions. His work was beneficial in supporting my project on studying applications of antibody biopharmaceuticals.”
  • Peer Review Experience– At the time of filing, we recorded that on the basis of our client’s knowledge and expertise in the field, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer review for elite journals in the field, and he has already completed 17 peer reviews to date. Since only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in authoritative journals like these, it is evident that he is seen as proficient in his chosen field.

Furthermore, to bolster his case we included 3 of his key projects as evidence of his contributions to and expertise in the field of chemical engineering. These project summaries highlighted the major utilization of his innovative methodologies, the nature of his breakthroughs, and the ways that his unique findings have been applied throughout the field, which further corroborates the urgent national need of his continuous vital contributions, addressing the crucial issues in public health in the United States.

Yet again our team’s dedication and diligence in his petition packet got him his EB-2 NIW petition approval granted by the USCIS without any obstacles. We are glad for being able to persuade USCIS of how our client’s research is needed to address the public health issues facing the United States and to lessen the dangers these diseases pose to both individuals and the nation. Therefore, we truly thank our client for choosing us (WeGreened Team) to help him in achieving this milestone.
