Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow based in New Jersey, possessing a Ph.D. in regulatory biology hired the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client was certain that we would help him in the best possible ways to get him closer to achieving his green card. Thus, we evaluated his exceptional credentials, proving the worth of his experiments to the United States. We highlighted the significance of his education and research benefiting the United States in his petition packet by adding the following relevant information:

  • Firstly, we detailed his research on eukaryote-specific regions of the eukaryotic ribosome. Specifically, he will study protein synthesis regulation and quality control pathways with the goal of characterizing the mechanisms of ribosomal function. We concluded that his research is crucial to the United States because it facilitates the development of improved antifungal drugs by providing necessary insight regarding the ribosomal region ES7 and its role as a target for antifungal therapies. Fungal infections impact more than 300 million people worldwide.
  • Also, we noted the 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) published by him in no fewer than 3 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, which accumulated 55 citations. Moreover, he has been invited to conduct peer reviews for noteworthy journals in the field, and he completed 10 peer reviews to date. As further evidence of his credentials, he has been selected for peer review service by top-tier journals in the field of biochemistry. He had also served as an editor for Biomedicines whereas service as an editor is restricted to professionals who exhibit superior acumen in and familiarity with the subject matter of a field. As such, his selection for this imperative task reflects how highly his opinion and judgment are esteemed by other researchers working in the field of biochemistry.
  • His work was supported by funding from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF). Receiving funding grants from these institutions is dedicated to advancing knowledge on complex living systems and further demonstrating the significance and national importance of our client’s research and his success in the field.

His fellow experts in the field also contributed more insight into the merit of his project, verifying how his unique research background propelled him to the forefront of the field. Given his long-standing record as a leader in the field of biochemistry, it is evident that he will continue to contribute high-quality work that benefits the United States. Therefore, we included five recommendation letters in his EB-2 NIW petition packet whereas one of the recommenders highlighted:

“[Client] has provided important insights into the functional significance of the eukaryote- specific N-terminal extension of rpS5, which plays important role in the development and progression of bone disorders… His research is not only important for scientists working in the biochemistry discipline, but also for the public at large, given that more than 1.5 million osteoporotic fractures occur in the U.S. each year, resulting in over 18$ billion in costs to U.S. citizens. Such numbers indicate that his research is financially significant and relevant to public health in the U.S.”

Successfully, we convinced the USCIS that our client’s intended research is in the best interests of the United States to actively support him to continue, and his NIW petition got approved without raising any further request for evidence (RFE). We sincerely thank him for contacting our law firm and congratulate him for achieving this milestone and becoming a part of this victorious story.
