Success Stories: Thanks to Our Team’s Work, a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in Bioinformatics Gets NIW and I-485 Confirmation Consecutively


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for all your help and efforts.”

On April 30th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Bioinformatics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Bioinformatics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: April 30th, 2022

Processing Time: 2 months, 8 days

Case Summary:

A letter of recommendation written by an expert is always advantageous when it comes to corroborating the experience of another scholar or scientist etc. This is also one of the ways we at NAILG use to help our clients build a strong petition and win approval for various kinds of immigrant or nonimmigrant visas. So when a senior postdoctoral researcher from Pakistan approached us for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we made sure that he obtained at least 4 letters of recommendation from other experts in the field. These letters made certain that the adjudicating bench was convinced of his merit granting him the National Interest Waiver without a Request for Evidence.

Our team made sure to collect relevant information from his career to get him the approval. The list of data contained the following among other things:

  • As an expert in bioinformatics, his proposed endeavor was to continue to conduct research on the development of state-of-the-art pipelines, algorithms, and systems in order to predict disease-specific biomarkers and the effects of drugs on diseases, study the viral microbiome, perform single-cell and epigenetic analyses of healthy and diseased gastrointestinal tissue, and investigate noncoding RNAs, especially in relation to conditions such as COVID-19, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver fibrosis.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor was of great importance because it leverages a number of advanced computational biology techniques to address pressing problems in the bioinformatics field and dependent areas of study and clinical application.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States because his computational diagnostic models help researchers address a number of pressing public health concerns.
  • His research has resulted in 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) which have been cited 651 times.
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor for 7 years giving him the necessary experience in the field.
  • His work has found support in letters written by 4 leading experts in the field. One of these letters contained the following information:

“[The client] has provided a critical tool that enables researchers to clarify the role of pathogens in disease emergence and develop enhanced therapies for the treatment of serious diseases. Considering the important nature of his work and its usefulness in a broad range of fields and sectors, I urge the USCIS to accept my endorsement of [the client] and allow him to continue his innovative work in the United States.”

So, when we filed his NIW application in February of 2022, we were hopeful of getting the approval without an RFE and so we did, that too only 2 months and 8 days later. We are thankful to our client for trusting us and we wish him the best.
