Success Stories: Within 4 Months, Our Team Helps a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Molecular Biology from Vietnam Obtain NIW Status


Client’s Testimonial:

“I am really surprised because the result came fast, only 3 months and a half. Thank you for your support. Thank you very much!”

On March 29th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Field of Molecular Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Molecular Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Country of Origin: Vietnam

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Mississippi

Approval Notice Date: March 29th, 2022

Processing Time: 3 months, 6 days

Case Summary:

“[The client’s] research is highly relevant to the ongoing global struggle to eradicate the rubella virus. [The client’s] research has resulted in the first-ever detailed epidemiologic study of the rubella virus in Vietnam and has elucidated important data on the genetic profile and diversity of the rubella virus. Her research thus has clear and beneficial implications for both the field of molecular biology and for global public health.”

“[The client], whom I have never collaborated with, is a molecular biology researcher of superlative talent. Her research on mitochondrial energy transduction has fundamentally advanced the study of mitochondrial bioenergetics, which is key to understanding and treating a host of diseases. The American government must ensure that her research proceeds unhindered.”

These testimonials are evidence that supports our client’s claim to the NIW (National Interest Waiver) status. Our client is a postdoctoral research fellow in molecular biology from Vietnam. She wanted to work with our firm and sought our help to prepare her case. This was made possible by our team, who made it their mission to prepare a winning case. They turned over every document she provided and found the following information:

  • As an expert in the field of molecular biology, her proposed endeavor is to continue her work establishing the pathological mechanisms of human diseases and finding targets for the treatment of human diseases.
  • Her work advancing her proposed endeavor is of great importance because she is using cutting-edge strategies to improve scientific efforts to understand and treat different diseases and viruses.
  • Her expertise is critical to precisely and accurately assessing mitochondrial function and dysfunction. Most specifically, she has advanced the field’s understanding of mitochondrial diseases as well as human papillomavirus (HPV), both of which are very common in the United States.
  • Due to its clear national importance, her research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Institutes of Health through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
  • Her work has resulted in 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored).
  • These publications have been cited a total of 70 times according to Google Scholar.
  • She has provided independent researchers from around the world with useful approaches to the study of complex topics within the field of molecular biology.
  • She has pursued research directly related to her proposed endeavor of establishing the pathological mechanisms of human diseases and finding targets for the treatment of human diseases for approximately 8 years.
  • She has also obtained 4 letters of recommendation from experts which we used along with her petition to win the NIW approval.

Thus we were able to prove that there is a particularly urgent national need for our client’s contributions considering the prevalence of diseases with genetic associations and variance as contributing factors. We are glad we could win her approval in a short period of 96 days. We thank her for her trust and wish her the best in all future endeavors.
