Client’s Testimonial:

“It is pleasure to hear the great news from you. Thank you very much for all your work and support in filling my petition to USCIS.”

On September 13th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Cancer Biology (Approval Notice).


General Field: Cancer Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: September 13th, 2016

Processing Time: 5 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

5 days was all it took for Nebraska Service Center to approve an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for our client—a postdoctoral researcher from India—who possessed a PhD in Comparative Medicine obtained from a well-known university in the United States. Despite the possible risk of being issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), our client chose to file his petition through Premium Processing (PP), an option that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days. This move paid off and his EB-1A petition was approved merely 5 days after filing. We at North America Immigration Law Group ( strongly believe that our solid presentation of our client’s superior credentials had an important role to play in this quick approval by the USCIS.

Amongst other things, our client’s winning EB-1A petition contained the following information: First and foremost, at the time of filing, his work had been cited 288 times by other researchers working in the field of cancer biology. We demonstrated that his specialized research is focused on the development and improvement of anti-cancer drugs and the characterization of novel methods for killing cancer cells. The USCIS saw merit in our client’s work and they were convinced that it helps the American research community in developing and employing transgenic mouse models for investigating drug delivery techniques that specifically target cancer cells.

Secondly, our client’s impressive and productive research had resulted in 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in several high impact journals. Finally, our client had served on the editorial board of a prestigious journal in the field of cancer biology and had assessed the work of his peers 13 times—an achievement of sorts usually reserved for top-level experts in any field.

To lay sure foundation to our client’s petition, we included 5 letters proffered by other experts working in the field of cancer biology. A professor of medicine wrote the following words of recommendation: “As I have worked closely with [Client] for several years, I have witnessed firsthand his exceptional abilities as a scientist. I am especially impressed by his ability to synthesize knowledge and experience from the fields of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in order to solve problems and achieve his research goals. Through his many talents, [Client] has accomplished very much in his career, earning himself a position at the very top of his field.”

We are overjoyed that our client’s EB-1A petition was approved, and we wish him luck as he continues to strive to reach the pinnacle of success in his field of cancer biology.
