General Field: Tissue Engineering

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: January 3rd, 2019

Processing Time: 3 months, 8 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

For this EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, North America Immigration Law Group ( worked with a Chinese postdoctoral fellow in the field of tissue engineering. His specialized research has focused on applying 3D fabrication techniques to create complex tissue scaffolds, which is critical to developing strategies to cure tissue/organ degeneration and understanding new ways to treat and study cancer.

Not only did we provide our client with useful and comprehensive advice from the beginning, we also gathered an array of information pertaining to his achievements in his field. We then leverage the data to build a customized EB-1A petition that highlighted his impressive abilities as a researcher.

Our client’s highly prolific career thus far had produced 37 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 4 book chapters, and he had been cited at least 793 times, primarily by independent researchers at prominent and leading institutions and organizations worldwide. This remarkable citation record clearly indicates the major significance of our client’s work. He had also conducted at least 50 reviews for 6 distinctive, internationally-circulated journals. It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue working in the area of tissue engineering, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States.

Further, we utilized recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field of tissue engineering to support his case. An independent recommender affirmed the significance of our client’s research: “The merit of [client]’s research lies in his significant contributions to advancing medical technology, particularly cancer treatment. In 2012, there were 14.1 million new cases of cancer diagnosed around the world, and every year more people are fighting cancer. Current cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation come with severe and painful side effects for the patient. Cancer surgery is also inexact. There is much work to be done in terms of treating cancer. [Client] is doing this work with his tissue engineering and other research. He is pioneering treatments that minimize patient suffering and maximize remission. [Client] must be allowed to remain and continue this important work”.

Although our client had a strong case, the USCIS issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), to which we promptly responded and effectively dealt with all doubts about his credentials and qualifications. Ultimately, his case was approved in 3 months and 8 days. The approval of this EB-1A petition is yet another example of our firm’s dedication towards helping all our clients move closer to green card success!
