Case Summary:


“Through his research, [Client] has provided the systems biology field with tremendous advancements in understanding the mechanisms of memory T cells […] There are only a few researchers that have the demonstrated ability to provide significant contributions to this topic in the manner that [Client] has already achieved, making him an irreplaceable asset for the United States.”

This vote of confidence was offered by a distinguished professor engaged in the field of systems biology. He was not alone when advocating our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case. He and several of his peers contributed recommendation letters attesting to the quality and significance of our client’s research on systems biology methods for immunology and human infectious disease studies. These letters were accompanied by data that made up our client’s professional portfolio: the 341 citations to his 12 published papers and the 13 times he contributed his insights to others biologists in his field via peer reviews.

Our client, a research scientist from China, holds an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics—both obtained from institutions in his country of birth. Because he chose to file his case under Premium Processing, the adjudication timeline amounted to less than two weeks. North America Immigration Law Group ( is extremely pleased at the outcome of this case as it is yet another example of our effectiveness and efficiency at helping our clients achieve their goals of obtaining green cards.
