Processing Time: 7 months, 18 days

Case Summary:

A Ph.D. student with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering hired NAILG ( to assist him in filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition to represent his case. When he approached us, he was well aware of our expert services provided to our clients in achieving I-140 petition approvals. As a part of our services, we started evaluating his educational and professional experience and proceeded with building a convincing case on his behalf. After a careful assessment of his credentials, we had already gathered an array of relevant details to put in his petition packet and get them submitted to the USCIS for further adjudication of his case.

In our presentation, we began by detailing his research on the electrophysiology study, mechanical characterization, and optical manipulation of lipid vesicles interacting with cell-penetrating nanoparticles, highlighting its great importance as his research increases the efficiency and safety of industrial electronics and prevents financial loss due to unreliable and inadequate devices. Also, his proposed research has broad implications for the United States, given the vital importance of thermal management for properly functioning energy systems and the need for improved cancer treatment.

Besides, we noted the 60 citations gathered from the 3 peer-reviewed, first-authored journal articles and 5 first-authored conference papers he published. His work has a definite impact on other researchers in the field as he has provided independent researchers with useful strategies to examine complex studies within the field of nanotechnology. Thus, his publications are widely reviewed and relied upon around the world, signifying that he is well-positioned to make further useful findings in this area.

Also, we noted that he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for elite journals in the field and has completed at least 7 peer reviews to date. Since only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to ensure the accuracy and quality of the work of their peers, especially in authoritative journals, it is clear that he possesses great knowledge and expertise in the field of nanotechnology.

To establish his built case further, we obtained five recommendation letters from our client, which he got signed by other renowned experts in the field. The below-stated excerpt is taken from one of the letters:

“Nanoparticle research is essential to the development of targeted therapies. Cancer drugs can be attached to nanoparticles and directed to the cells that they act on. [Client’s] research is valuable for the development of improved targeted therapies. His investigation of how nanoparticles penetrate cell membranes has monumental implications for the targeted transport of cancer drugs.”

Through inclusive documentation, we were successfully able to convince USCIS of our client’s study of the passive transport of nanoparticles in cells, paving the way for the evolution of enhanced targeted drugs to treat severe diseases like cancer. Therefore, USCIS approved his EB-2 NIW petition within 7 months and 18 days. We are happy to help our client with his NIW application and would like to thank him for trusting and allowing us to be a part of this success story.
