Case Summary:

A biomedical science expert from Indonesia hired NAILG for his National Interest Waiver application to the USCIS. He was a talented research fellow working in the field with a Ph.D. in cardiovascular medicine for the past 6 years. So while preparing his case for filing, we made sure that his work was showcased to the best effect. This meant making a list of his accomplishments whether academic or otherwise. Some of the facts our team collected during the prepping period are:

  • His proposed endeavor is to continue investigating cardiac metabolism abnormalities in cardiovascular disease in order to develop novel metabolic interventions and metabolic imaging, ultimately translating the findings into clinical practice.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it enhances the capacity of medical institutions, clinics, and their staff to safely and reliably detect risks of heart failure in patients.
  • This research endeavor also has broad implications for the United States where according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 6 million American adults experience heart failure.
  • Due to its national importance, his research has also been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • Along with this, he has completed at least 24 reviews to date and his research has resulted in 16 peer-reviewed journal articles (10 of them first-authored).
  • Additionally, these publications have been cited a total of 488 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of biomedical science.
  • His study has also been supported by funding from the NIH, NWO, and Netherlands Heart Foundation indicating the significance of his work for people around the world.
  • He has been pursuing research directly related to his proposed endeavor of investigating cardiac metabolism abnormalities in cardiovascular disease for 6 years giving him the necessary expertise to win the approval of the USCIS.
  • He also had 2 recommenders who had written letters of support in his favor.

All of these factors were woven together in the form of an impressive petition letter and filed for adjudication at the USCIS. Without requesting the premium processing service, only 2 months and 14 days had lapsed when the approval came through. We are proud of having worked for him and we wish him the best in his future research.
