Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Professor and Chief Physician

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

Case Summary:

With extensive research experience in the field of regenerative medicine and a doctoral degree in neurology, a China-born associate professor & chief physician hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her secure I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Filing an I-140 petition is the first of two steps when it comes to obtaining permanent residency in the United States. The second step entails filing an I-485 application (if the applicant resides in the US) or undergoing immigrant visa processing (if the applicant is outside the US).

A thorough review of our client’s academic profile helped us establish that her specialized research is focused on the use of pluripotent stem cells to model the pathogenesis of human diseases in order to find new therapeutic targets. Upon further analysis, we reached the conclusion that her research helps the United States in understanding, treating, and preventing some of the most fatal and debilitating neurodegenerative diseases.

To prepare a strong EB-1A case for our client, we gathered as much information as we could concerning her scientific credentials. Our goal was to prove that she belonged to the small percentage of researchers who have risen to the very top of their field. This included her publication and citation record, as well as her peer-review experience. At the time of filing, our client had published 57 peer-reviewed publications which had garnered 875 citations. She had also conducted 53 peer-reviews on behalf of various high-impact scientific journals.

Moreover, 4 recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field helped us strengthen the case even further. These letters convinced the USCIS of our client’s tremendous influence in the field of regenerative medicine. One such recommendation letter stated: “[Client] is a rare sort of researcher who combines her years of experience in patient care with basic research on neural stem cells. Such experience is vital to translating progress in neuroscience and stem cells to developing effective treatments for neurodegenerative disorders… [Her research] holds a greater significance to these individuals and their families than any research completed so far and represents the best chance of determining how to treat this disease.”

As per our client’s request, the well-crafted EB1A petition which we put together was filed with Premium Processing (PP). This led to rapid adjudication of the petition within 11 days. We congratulate our client for overcoming the first hurdle in the green card journey, and we wish her the best as she undergoes immigrant visa processing (IVP) from outside the US.
