On September 8th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Biochemistry and Chemical Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biochemistry and Chemical Biology

Approval Notice Date: September 8th, 2017

Processing Time: 14 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow based in Maryland hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him attain green card success. With 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 book chapters and a record of 256 citations, we confirmed that he was an extraordinary researcher whose work significantly impacts the field of biochemistry and chemical biology. In preparing his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we not only included the aforementioned information but his peer review record of 14 reviews as well.

Convincing the USCIS that our client is a force to be reckoned with:

Arguably one of the most important elements of our client’s petition dossier contained information on his research. We demonstrated that his specialized research is focused on leveraging his interdisciplinary expertise in chemical biology to develop tools and strategies for treating human diseases, including cancer and diabetes. Overall, we built the EB1A case to prove that our client’s research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding the molecular mechanisms of gene- and drug-delivery therapies and diabetes, which in turn positively augments researchers’ abilities to develop effective treatment approaches.

Securing additional information:

Besides a copy of our client’s CV, diplomas, and information on his employment, the EB1A petition packet contained five recommendation letters. These letters were signed by other well-known experts in the field and they noted the importance of allowing our client to continue his research unhindered in the country. This is what one of the recommenders stated: “Considering the urgent nature of cancer research, particular in the United States, it is evident that [Client’s] work must be considered as a national priority, and that he should receive all available support to continue it.”

We congratulate our client for securing EB1A petition approval in 10 days (PremiumProcessing significantly sped up the timeline). We thank him for working with us and join him as he waits for the USCIS to take action on his I-485 application.
