Case Summary:

A research scientist, holding a Ph.D. in biotechnology and with great experience researching the field of psychiatry had a delight working with North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG). We helped him in filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf.
Our client determined to be a suitable candidate for the EB-2 NIW visa category. We appraised our client’s academic and professional credentials and countersigned the retainer agreement. Our priority was to foreground our client’s scholastic accolades. To fortify his case, we included the following bits of information in his petition packet:

  • Publication Record, Citation Count, Peer-Review, and Research Experience:

Our client has an extraordinary record of publications. He has not only succeeded in the research but his research has also swayed his fellow experts. We have detailed the 211 citations accumulated from his 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored book chapter, he published. Also, we noted that he reviewed the work of his peers 13 times, up till the time of filing.

Our client’s research is on advancing the understanding of human sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy. His research work is of great importance because it significantly contributes to global efforts in combating human sleep disorders. With his extensive experience in conducting genetic and biotechnology-related research, he has propelled himself to the forefront of the psychiatry field through his revolutionary research, including his extensive study of the pathology of narcolepsy.

  • Adding the Recommendation Letters:

To assure that our client is entitled to move toward the next step in his research work, we detailed four of his recommendation letters obtained from his peer-experts in the same field to provide further insight into the merit of this endeavor. One of the recommenders appended:

“[Client’s] experience sets him apart from other investigators in the field of psychiatry and allows him to identify key relationships between genetics and psychiatric disorders.”

  • Definitive Step:

We were successful in putting our client’s scientific pursuits across the USCIS, which are thus critical to national efforts in developing solutions that reduce the burden of human sleep disorders and improve public wellbeing. He received his NIW approval within 8 months after the USCIS thoroughly adjudicated his case. We thank our client for entrusting us to be a part of his success story and wishing him the best in his future aspirations.
