Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was approached by an assistant professor based in Texas to support her in constituting an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition representing her. Based on her meticulous academic background including her Ph.D. in natural product and synthetic chemistry and several years of experience in the same field, she was a suitable candidate to secure NIW approval. Thus, we affirmed her attestations and commenced building a strong case on her behalf.

To ensure that our client is exemplary to continue her research work in the United States, we elaborated her research on designing cost-effective strategies to develop new therapeutic molecules from medicinal plants for advanced clinical trials and how it is of great importance in combating some of the world’s most prevalent and deadly diseases.

Also, we stated all the 349 citations gathered from the 25 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored) she published. Additionally, these papers have been published in the commendable journals in our client’s field, symbolizing her peers’ recognition for these research works.

Most importantly, we detailed the value and importance of our client’s work by demonstrating her record of successful research in an area that furthers U.S. interests. To support the petition further, we added four recommendation letters collected from other notable experts in the field, contributing valuable insights on her research abilities in the field of natural product chemistry.

One of her recommenders stated: “[Client’s] research has resulted in the synthesis of products that exhibit strong tuberculosis-inhibiting characteristics. Thus, her research has been extremely advantageous to global health by providing a new line of treatment for millions around the world.”

We had a pleasure working with our client, and we truly appreciate her association with us. After USCIS adjudicated her case, we were successful in getting her NIW petition approved without any request for evidence (RFE). We congratulate our client on this grand milestone and wish her well in her future endeavors.
