Case Summary:

For this EB-1A Alien of Extraordinary Ability case, we had the privilege of working with a Postdoctoral Fellow, who has made substantial contributions and garnered international acclaim in the field of Cancer Biology. In his research endeavors, our client has identified several biomarkers for characterizing, diagnosing, and treating various forms of cancer, including brain cancer, prostate cancer, and liver cancer. His work addresses some of our nation’s most pressing concerns in understanding the onset and progression of cancer, a matter of utmost interest as cancer is the second-leading cause of death in American adults. The major significance of his work was endorsed by an independent recommender, who stated, “Considering the sheer value represented by these advances, as manifested in the literally billions of dollars invested in such research every year throughout the world, and the millions of deaths in the world due to the disease, supporting [Client’s] work confers broad benefit to other scientific and to millions of cancer patients throughout the world.”Our client’s profound understanding of the tumor microenvironment has revolutionized the methodologies that are currently used in oncological, clinical, and genomic studies. The originality of his work has culminated in authorship of 19 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts that were published in the top journals of his field, an issued patent, and another provisional patent. At the time of filing his case, his publications had been cited 299 times by researchers worldwide, demonstrating the global scientific community’s heavy reliance upon his work. Furthermore, his work has been presented and discussed at internationally renowned conferences. Additionally, our client has been invited to judge the work of his colleagues and other forerunners in his field, and he has served as a manuscript reviewer for 16 highly distinguished, internationally circulated journals related to the field of Cancer Biology. In total, he has reviewed 33 manuscripts thus far. In demonstrating the extraordinary ability of our client and international acclaim for his research, we were able to prove that he has risen to the very top of his field of endeavor. With the extensive and thorough documentation that we provided, we were met with success when his EB-1Apetition was expeditiously approved in 28 days.
