Case Summary:

A Ph.D. candidate hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her obtain EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Our client has expertise in the field of pathobiology, particularly focused on unravelling mechanisms involved in various diseases. Her research has resulted in the discovery of a mechanism of drug resistance in acute myeloid leukemia. Our client’s research aids the development of novel therapeutic approaches for treating leukemia. Undoubtedly, her work directly contributes to American public health.

Our client’s credentials:

Our goal was to highlight how the US stands to gain a great deal by allowing our client to continue working in the country. Highlighting our client’s various achievements such as the 9 peer-reviewed publications to her name as well as the 26 peer reviews she had conducted for high-impact scientific journals made up a portion of the petition. Furthermore, we listed the 103 times her findings were cited by other researchers.

An important element of our client’s EB-1A petition was the presentation of recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the scientific community. These 6 letters attested to the importance and significance of our client’s contributions to the field as well as to the United States. An excerpt from one of these letters noted:

“[Client] is an accomplished researcher in the field of Pathobiology, and her valuable contributions have greatly benefited her field. The observations that she has made thus far virtually guarantee that she will continue to make important discoveries in the Pathobiology field for many years to come.”

There is no doubt that these recommenders helped highlight the relevance of our client’s work to the field, lending a hand in case approval.

We are glad that the USCIS was convinced of the significance of our client’s contributions to the country and was persuaded to approve her EB-1A petition. We congratulate her on this win and wish her well as she continues to conduct excellent research in the field of pathobiology.
