Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for Postdoc Researcher in the field of Cancer Research

Client’s Testimonial:

Thank you so much for your great help. It’s really a nice experience to work with you. So I introduce you to many friends of mine who were planning to apply PR and they have become your clients. I am very willing to share my successful experience with all Taiwanese in Cornell University (where I am working) and my friends are somewhere else in US.

Recently, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for Postdoc Researcher working in the field of Cancer Research. (Approval Notice)

General Field: Immunotherapy, Pathology, Cancer Research
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher
National Origin: Taiwan
Service Center: Texas
Processing Time: 115 Days

Case Summary:

When filing NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates work diligently to gather sufficient evidence that the petitioner: (1) seeks employment in an area of substantial intrinsic merit; (2) The proposed benefit of their current work is national in scope; and (3) The national interest would be adversely affected if a labor certification were required.

Although the gathering of this evidence may be daunting for those inexperienced in these matters, we Chen Immigration Law Associates have developed basic strategies for procuring this evidence and tailoring these strategies specifically for each client in order to provide the best possible chances for a swift approval.

In this specific case it was important to note the client’s ample experience working with cancer research and the impact his published works have had on this extremely important field. As this client had published 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles in leading journals, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates took special notice to the impact factor of these journals. As several of these journals had been ranked in the 12 journals published in Oncology, it was important to reference this as it reinforced the superb quality imposed on the client’s published papers.

In addition to referencing the influence and importance surrounding this client’s published journals, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates highlighted what this research will offer the national interest. As this client predominantly focused on cancer research, it was important to emphasize the national scope of this research. With this in consideration, we highlighted this client’s work with vitamin D transcription controls on epithelial cell lines in prostate cancer, and the key implications of androgen receptors in bladder cancer and microbial infections. Most importantly, successful research in this client’s field addresses some of the most pressing issues in the pathology and biology of cancer. As this research continues it possess both benefits for the national and international interests, offering a positive future for ongoing developments in the field.

Beyond the identification of this important research and its value to the national interest, it was important that this evidence be reinforced by experts in the field. In order to do this, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates assisted in the procuring of six recommenders from applicable fields of interest. These recommenders reviewed, edited, and signed letters that were written on their behalf providing additional testimony of the accomplishments and merit associated with the client’s research and its importance to the national interest.

Finally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates researched hundreds of AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) decisions citing those that were applicable to this specific case, reinforcing the credentials and value of this client’s specific work in relation to cases previously ruled in favor of petitioners with less impressive credentials than this client.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work towards the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
