Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved Without RFE for Biochemistry Research Associate in Massachusetts with 127 Citations


Client’s Testimonial:

“Hi Wegreened, Thanks much for your help! Really appreciate your effort.”

On November 7th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).


General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: November 7th, 2016

Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “… the most suitable and qualified researcher for continuing to do groundbreaking research in the biomedical field in the United States.” The recommender went on to state that: “It is imperative that he be allowed to continue to go about his research without interruption, for the loss sustained by the removal of [Client’s] work would be most considerable.”

The quotes above were extracted from a recommendation letter provided by a prominent professor based in the United States. This letter was contributed to support an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition that our law firm filed for one of our clients— a research associate from China. The professor was not alone in his show of support and was joined by five of his peers, all of whom volunteered recommendation letters of their own. These letters were incorporated into our client’s EB-1A petition packet and served as strong evidence that he is an essential member of the biochemistry research community.

As part of our services, we compiled as much information as we could on our client’s work in the field. We determined that his research had led to the publication of 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter at the time of filing, and that his work had gathered 127 citations. Furthermore, we confirmed that our client had conducted 16 peer reviews for a variety of scientific journals. Perhaps one of the most important elements of our client’s EB-1A petition packet had to do with his research on the identification of early-stage biomarkers for liver, ovarian, and breast cancer, a critical area of inquiry for the development of early therapeutic interventions for these widely fatal conditions. After thoroughly studying our client’s work, we concluded that his findings advance the American medical sector, most notably when it comes to diagnosing common and fatal cancers in their early stages, which is crucial to early intervention strategies and improved patient outcomes.

Overall, the USCIS spent close to 9 months adjudicating our client’s case before approving it. We are pleased that our client is now one step closer to his green card, and we wish him the best as he files I-485 applications for himself and his spouse to adjust their status for permanent residency.
