Case Summary:

Discussing the importance of our client’s research, a principal scientist wrote: “…research affecting the quality and production of cattle has considerable implications for the US economy and food production. [Client] is a uniquely talented animal biotechnologist who has been responsible for major breakthroughs in cattle-related research, which are extremely valuable to the US.”

Several other renowned experts in the field of molecular biology testified to the research headway made by our client—a postdoctoral fellow from India— in understanding prion protein neuroprotective action and in realizing the benefits of myostatin gene silencing to achieve economic success in widespread agricultural sectors.

When our client first approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG), we assessed his credentials and found him to be a perfect fit for the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) category. We meticulously drafted the EB1-A petition which, apart from the recommendation letters mentioned above, contained the following information:

  • His publication record of at least 44 peer-reviewed scientific articles (with our client being the first or corresponding author of 14 of them).
  • The citation record of 318 accumulated from researchers all around the world who have referred to his findings in their own studies.
  • We also detailed the 19 reviews he had conducted for various esteemed journals in the field, proving that he is a discerning judge of the work of his peers.

Exactly 6.5 months after we filed our client’s I-140 petition, he opted to upgrade his case to Premium Processing. By paying the USCIS $1,225 more, they took action on his case 7 days later by approving it. We are extremely pleased that our efforts led to this win, and we thank our client for working with us on his EB1A petition.
