Case Summary:

Just two weeks after filing an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a staff scientist from China, we received notification of case approval from the USCIS. The team at North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) is delighted to have successfully represented this I-140 EB1A petition, and these are some of the steps we took to secure petition approval:

Our strategic course of action:

Before taking on the case, our evaluation team checked if our client’s qualifications met the EB1A requirements set by the USCIS. After concluding that we could help him obtain petition approval, we initiated the attorney-client relationship and started building a strong case for him.

The following step entailed collecting relevant data to prove our client’s extraordinary ability as a molecular biologist. We assembled a wealth of information related to his professional achievements which included:

  • A description of his specialized research which focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms, pathways, and genetics underlying autoimmune diseases and inflammation.
  • His outstanding publication record of 15 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 4 journal abstracts, and a citation record of 309. Our client has consistently published his findings, which proved that he is continuously working to progress the field of molecular biology.
  • His record of conducting 16 peer reviews for highly acclaimed scientific journals, which showed that he is active in the field.

We then worked on proving how our client’s studies benefit the United States. Our argument that our client’s research addresses some of the nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to treat immune dysregulation and prevent inflammation-induced cancer was supported by several experts in the field. They contributed recommendation letters that were incorporated into the EB1A petition. Two of the recommenders emphasized the importance of our client’s work by stating:

“[Client] is an irreplaceable researcher in the unending fight against disease, and it is thus critical that he be allowed to continue his vital work in molecular and cellular immunology, as his research aids in the diagnosis and novel treatment of major diseases.”

“[Client]’s history of success in molecular biology guarantees that his future work will continue to be just as laudable as his past. With this in mind, I highly recommend that [Client] be granted the necessary concessions to continue his research in the United States, as he represents an invaluable asset to making further headway in molecular biology and gene expression analysis.”

We are pleased that our client obtained EB1A approval, and we congratulate him on this win. We wish him the best as he moves forward with the final step in the green card process (filing an I-485 application).
