On February 14th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Associate working in the Field of Biotechnologies (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biotechnologies

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: February 14th, 2023

Processing Time: 1 month, 11 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A client from Pakistan with a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences approached us to help her file the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition; we, therefore, employed our team of experts to build a convincing case for her. We included details from her professional and academic career in her petition packet to support her claim to the NIW category.

We showcased that along with her academic qualification:

  • She was also actively engaged in the field of biotechnologies as a Research Associate.

And that her proposed endeavor is to continue her research on identifying novel therapeutic drug targets in aggressive triple-negative breast cancer to inform and develop new therapies for breast cancer patients in order to improve existing treatment strategies, overcome chemoresistance, and minimize cancer recurrence rates.

Furthermore, due to its evident national importance, the client’s research has been supported with funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Guangdong Basic and Applied Basic Research Foundation, the Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Commission, and the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region. This funding supports projects that advance research in science and technology, promote socio economic development, and promote the development of advanced and applied technology

On the other hand, we highlighted that her academic performance has been responsible for several publications, and citations:

  • Her research has resulted in 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (one of them first-authored) and 2 peer-reviewed conference abstracts.
  • Her publications have been cited 42 times according to Google Scholar.

Not only this but the recommendations had an excellent review of her work, one (out of four) of which are quoted below:

“[Client’s] research in biotechnologies has played a key role in reaching new milestones in efforts to fight cancer and improve human health generally…Her work has also addressed issues in other health challenges including genetic predispositions to asthma, clarifying the direction of future research. This work is incredibly important to the ongoing attempts to improve public health especially with regard to major conditions like cancer.”

Based on this multifactorial assessment, it is clear that the client’s education, experience, expertise, documented record of success, influence in her field, and plan have altogether well-positioned her in her area of expertise.

We are thus very proud that our client got her NIW approval in just 1 month, 11 days. It has been an incredible journey with her. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors.
