General Field: Chemistry

Approval Notice Date: December 2nd, 2020

Processing Time: 11 months, 14 days

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from India hired the North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to assist her in filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf.

Holder of a Ph.D. in chemistry with great experience researching the same field, our client proved to be an apt candidate for this visa category. We evaluated our client’s credentials, and after the mutual agreement, we commenced preparing the EB-2 case for our client.

Our sole purpose was to highlight our client’s prodigious academic accolades. To support the case, we incorporated the following bits of information:

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

  • Our client’s research focuses in large part on the utilization of nanotechnology and nanomedicine to produce novel treatments for cancer and other serious medical conditions. Unlike chemotherapy, nanotechnology treatments directly and selectively target cancerous cells and enhance the efficacy of radiation-based treatments. This results in decreased risks to the patient, fewer side effects, and a higher probability of survival.
  • Our client has not only accomplished the research in her field but her research has also swayed her peers and colleagues. She has an excellent record of publications. We have detailed the 227 citations amassed from her 14 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (6 of them first-authored) she published. Also, we noted the 120 times she judged the work of her peers.

Acquiring the Recommendation Letters:

  • To persuade the USCIS that our client deserved to move forward to the next step in her research work and prove to be a valuable resource to the United States, we attached two of her recommendation letters. One of the recommenders added:

“[Our Client’s] research has produced a number of compelling nanoparticle conjugates with proven selective uptake in cancer cells, making her an invaluable asset to biochemistry, as well as the millions of patients living with cancer around the world.”

Final Step:

  • Our client received her NIW approval within a year, thereby moving her closer to the final step of the green card process. We thank our client for trusting us to be a part of her success story and wishing her the best on her future endeavors.
