Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “a truly impressive researcher who has applied analytical and statistical methods to benefit biological and medical research, and his work is important for researchers engaged in in-depth studies of the human body, pharmaceutical and medical development for more effective disease therapies, and for patients suffering from harmful health conditions.”

The quote above was extracted from a recommendation letter signed by a prominent assistant professor in support of our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. This professor was joined by 5 other experts in the field of bioinformatics, all of whom volunteered recommendation letters of their own.

In addition to these recommendation letters, our client’s EB1A petition dossier contained a wealth of information related to his work in the field of bioinformatics. From the 212 times his work was cited, to the dozen times he judged the work of his peers, we detailed it all. We also noted the 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 patent and 1 book chapter to his name.

In addition to that, we noted our client’s Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and informed the USCIS that he is equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to continue researching the application of bioinformatics in the biological and medical fields.

Despite our best efforts, the USCIS issued a Request for Evidence (RFE) not long after we submitted the petition on our client’s behalf. However, we effectively responded to the RFE and proved that our client is a one-of-a-kind researcher whose work benefits the United States. The USCIS subsequently approved our client’s petition, propelling him one big step closer to green card success. We thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to represent his EB1A case, and we wish him the best as he files an I-485 application with the help of our D.I.Y. Packet.
