Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law represented a postdoctoral scholar in the field of Pharmaceutical Science with both an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition and an EB-2 NIW petition. This client had contributed towards the development of a spirohydantoin-based method of treating epilepsy, as well as contributing towards the development of a pharmaceutical inhibitor for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. In addition, he had also designed various inhibitors that can contribute towards the treatment of immune disorders and cancer. More recently, this client had researched and designed pharmaceutical inhibitors of glucose regulated protein 94, which is related to disorders such as sepsis and autoimmune disease. These aforementioned projects had contributed in 13 presentations at national and international conferences, as well as 13 peer-reviewed articles. These publications had been cited 65 times at the time of filing this case. In addition to researching and publishing his work, this client had served as a manuscript reviewer for 12 internationally-circulated journals. One recommender explained: Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder in the world, afflicting 7 people out of every 1000, with 40 million cases worldwide. In the United States, there are currently at least 2.3 million people currently living with and seeking treatment for epilepsy. Yearly, 200,000 new cases are reported, and an estimated 25,000 to 50,000 patients die of seizures or related causes. The attendant economic impact of this condition is estimated at around $12.5 billion each year. Considering these statistics, there could not be a clearer need or more appropriate time for the acquisition and application of [Client’s] research. 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 work in the area of Pharmaceutical Science, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, this EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition received approval only 50 days after filing the case.
