Case Summary:

A Nigerian research assistant hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file a NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. With a master’s degree in electrical engineering, our client specializes research on applying signal processing and machine learning algorithms to study complex genetic diseases, which addresses several major concerns in American public health. Our legal team customized a petition with careful preparation and presentation of evidence which successfully convinced the USCIS that his continued employment in the field would greatly benefit those in his field, as well as the citizens of the United States at large.

One of the client’s notable achievements is creating applications using computational methods to uncover the genetic cause of diseases such as cancer or genetic disorders, which could accelerate the development of new treatments and allows for earlier diagnosis. The improved understanding of the mechanisms behind these diseases is a necessary step in finding more effective treatments and reducing its economic costs, which proves that his work provides value to the US as a whole. We supplemented our petition with documentary evidence showing our client’s standing in his field of endeavor, including 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 1 peer-reviewed conference paper, and 1 book chapter, which have been cited a total of 11 times in the petition.

Six letters of recommendation were also included to accredit his contributions to the field. One of the recommenders noted: “[Client]’s creation of his approach for identifying cancer cell subpopulations has definitively established him as a pioneer in the field of computational biology. Through aiding the fight against cancer, which has effects across geographical lines and socioeconomic status, [Client]’s research has also proven extremely impactful to public health.”

We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant challenge in the green card process, and we thank him for retaining our I-485 services to help him and his spouse to adjust for US permanent residency. To learn more about I-485 Adjustment of Status, please visit:
