Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and extensive experience conducting research in the same field, our client (a postdoctoral research associate from China) was a suitable candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). After confirming that we could build a solid case on her behalf, we initiated an attorney-client relationship.

North America Immigration Law Group’s role:

Part of our services included amassing a wealth of information on her various achievements in the field. For example, we used Google Scholar to determine her citation count, which at the time of filing stood at 121 citations. We also noted her 11 published scientific articles and the two dozen times she conducted peer reviews for various high-impact scientific journals.

We also helped our client select strong recommenders who could contribute testimonials in support of her EB-1A petition. We ensured that these recommenders were experts in the field of biomedical engineering and that they were familiar with our client’s research. The six letters that our client gathered contained statements such as these:

  • “Without question, [Client] is one of the most accomplished researchers working in biomedical engineering research today. [Client’s] designs represent a significant advance for the diagnostic community.”
  • “[Client’s] experience, insight, and willingness to expand upon existing studies evince her as a biomedical researcher at the top of her field.”

As our client elected to file her case using Premium Processing (PP), she received notification of case approval just 9 days later. As is apparent by the approval notice, the USCIS was convinced that our client’s research provides an objective and reliable optical imaging tool for clinicians to noninvasively detect oral cancer early in order to increase the five-year survival rate of patients. We congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process, and we wish her the best as she files I-485 applications for herself and her dependents.
