Case Summary:

A research fellow from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to furnish an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. While preparing our client’s petition file, we collected all the required information on his research work in the field of clinical medicine. We validated that he held three degrees – a bachelor of medicine, a doctor of Medicine, and a master of public health degree with several years of experience, and expertise, a record of publication, and citation in the same field signified that he is an ideal source to benefit the public health domain here in the United States.

Based on our client’s substantial credentials, we prepared a solid case on his behalf by adding the following pieces of information:

Research Brief:
We elaborated his research on the cardiovascular diseases and oncology. Our client’s work in the field is of great importance as it improves the prediction and detection of cancer and the treatment outcomes of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, his research holds significant implications for the treatment of various deadly diseases in the United States.

Publication Record, Peer-review Experience and Citation Count:
We observed how our client’s work influenced his peers and colleagues and accumulated 127 citations from the 35 peer-reviewed journal articles, 1 article in press, and 1 accepted manuscript (24 of them first-authored or co-first-authored) he published. Also, we noted that he conducted 116 reviews as an active peer-reviewer of the scientific community, implying his important stand in the field of clinical medicine.

Recommendation Letters:
He provided us with 2 recommendation letters that he obtained from his peers and experts working in the field. We added the same in his petition packet and presented it to the USCIS as additional evidence. According to one of his recommenders:

“It is essential that researchers including [client] continue to work to reduce both the mortality and morbidity rates as well as the economic burden of heart disease in the United States.”

Successful Result:
We, finally, convinced USCIS that our client is an invaluable asset to the United States and he must continue his research. The team at would like to thank and congratulate him for trusting and associating with us.
