Success Stories: Premium Processing Upgrade Helps a Mexican Postdoctoral Fellow in Neurobiology Win NIW Approval in Just 30 Days, Thanks Also to Our Diligent Casework


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for all your help again!”

On February 16th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Neurobiology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Neurobiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: Mexico

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: February 16th, 2023

Processing Time: 1 month (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Some of the factors that played a major role in proving the eligibility of a Mexican postdoctoral fellow in neurobiology for the National Interest Waiver category are as follows:

  • As an expert in the field, his proposed endeavor is to continue his research investigating the mechanistic process of associative learning to demonstrate how normal learning affects changes in the cerebral cortex and how neurological disorders develop.
  • He wanted to advance the development of improved diagnoses and interventions for neurological disorders.
  • His work advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it advances treatment and diagnostic strategies for prevalent neurological and neurodegenerative diseases that significantly compromise global well-being and public health.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since neurological conditions have been estimated to affect over 200 million people nationally or 60% of the population.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his work has in fact been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
  • Not only this, but his work has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored). And these publications have been cited a total of 173 times according to Google Scholar indicating the widespread use of his research by his peers all over the world.
  • Along with these factors, his 4 recommendations helped a great deal in proving the worth of research for the country and the world.

So, when we found that he has pursued research for 6 years directly related to his proposed endeavor of demonstrating how normal learning changes the cerebral cortex connectivity to know how neurological disorders develop, we knew that he had all that is desired from an NIW candidate. This is why his case approval was also quite quick. Thanks to the premium processing upgrade after which his approval took only 16 days to come through.

We are privileged to have worked with him and we wish him the very best for the future. We look forward to his research benefiting the U.S. in the future too.
