Case Summary:

Exactly 9 months and 11 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a Research Associate and Quality Assurance-Quality Control Manager from China, the USCIS approved his case. With many years of experience progressing the field of radiochemistry and various accolades to show for his work, it comes as no surprise that our client is now well on his way to obtaining a green card .

Putting together a strong case:

We take great pride in our work and ensure that every case is built to the highest of standards. In this case, we highlighted our client’s various achievements in the field such as his publication record and citation count. At the time of filing, our client had published 32 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 48 presentations at national and international conferences. Moreover, his work had gathered 333 citations. Furthermore, we noted our client’s peer review experience (7 reviews conducted for 3 journals) and demonstrated that as only the very best in the field are invited to judge the work of others, our client is undoubtedly an influential member of the radiochemistry research community.

Gathering additional evidence:

Thanks to the well-written research summary which our client presented to us so that we could better understand his work, we concluded that he is focused on developing a variety of radiopharmaceuticals for the early detection and treatment of cancer and other human diseases by Positron Emission Tomography (PET). We demonstrated that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how PET imaging reagents behave in the human body, leading to more effective diagnoses and therapies for cancer or other diseases. Furthermore, we urged our client to obtain recommendation letters from a handful of his peers. We needed them to support our argument that our client’s work is essential to the United States, and they did not let us down. According to one of these recommenders: “[Client] developed and realized a truly unique concept for a radiopharmaceutical tracer… all of his work ends in genuine benefits for the field, his peers, and average citizens. Given this, I am truly convinced it is imperative that he is permitted to continue his work in the United States.”

Taking the final step:

We thank our client for working with our firm and wish him the best as he embarks on the final leg of the green card journey: filing I-485 applications for himself and his wife to adjust their status for permanent residence.
