On November 19th, 2013, We Received Another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Biomedical Science (Approval Notice)

General Field: Biomedical Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: Taiwan

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing:  Maryland

Approval Notice Date: November 19, 2013

Processing Time:  26 days

Case Summary:

The accomplished client that North America Immigration Law had the pleasure of working with in this case was a Postdoctoral Fellow from Taiwan working in the field of biomedical science.  Her work had focused specifically on understanding human health at the genetic and cellular levels and using that understanding to develop new and more effective treatments for diseases such as cystic fibrosis (CF), age-related immune disorders, and Gitelman Syndrome and its related disorders.  Her research results have directly contributed to the understanding of human health and development, particularly how the immune system changes with age. We demonstrated that her continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in her field, but the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of biomedical science, including at least 7 peer-reviewed journal articles and numerous conference papers. Her publications had been cited at least 186 times at the time of case filing, clearly demonstrating that these publications are internationally recognized and relied upon in her field.  The following quote from an independent recommender explains how the influence of her work has spread beyond the boundaries of her own research, “[She], along with other researchers, strives to improve medical treatments for inherited chronic diseases including cystic fibrosis. […] [She] has provided researchers with new information about these disorders and a new element to explore for treatment options. Zinc is an abundant mineral already available even in over the counter forms, which means that medical advancements that arise as a result of [her] work will not only improve and save lives, but do so at a low cost.”  Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. Her NIW application was approved in just 26 days, which is well short of the 4-6 month average processing time for I-140 petitions.
