Case Summary:


Not long ago, North America Immigration Law Group helped a postdoctoral scholar from China attain an approval for his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Our client, who has a Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology, has published 8 journal articles that have collected 114 citations, and amassed years of experience working in the field of molecular biology. His research focuses on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Several experts in our client’s field lent support to his EB-1A case in the form of recommendation letters. One of these experts stated that “[Client] is a leader within the field of molecular biology and cancer research. His work on pediatric sarcomas (one of the most common types of cancer that afflict children) is of paramount importance for the well-being of our youngest citizenry, and the scholarly level of his work serves as an example to other scientists, who benefit from the knowledge his research provides.” Furthermore, we demonstrated the importance of our client’s insights to other members of the scientific community by highlighting the 25 times he conducted peer reviews on behalf of high impact journals.

Our well-balanced petition packet convinced the USCIS that our client’s findings progress his field as well as the United States healthcare system. Thanks to Premium Processing, our client obtained an approval notice merely eight days after we filed the case on his behalf. We congratulate him on this milestone and thank him for choosing us to represent his EB-1A case.
