Case Summary:

This EB-1A case involved a prominent research fellow immersed in the field of cancer research. She engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her get one step closer to green card success. As soon as a binding attorney-client relationship arose, our legal team got to work putting together a convincing EB-1A petition that showcased our client’s various accomplishments in the field.

One of the first things we did was advise our client to connect with other well-known cancer researchers in her field and ask for recommendation letters to bolster our EB-1A petition. Our client’s persistence paid off and she returned with six testimonials that attested to the value of her work to the United States. One of her recommenders described her research as “… vital because it allows for the development of new and varied treatments for cancer, which is arguably the most dangerous disease in the world from a human health perspective.”

These letters were accompanied by various aspects of our client’s illustrious portfolio. We documented the 163 citations to her work, her 9 publications, and the over three dozen times she offered her insights to her peers through peer reviews. Furthermore, we went to great lengths to properly understand our client’s research efforts on the discovery of novel molecular pathways that have significant prognostic value in human breast cancer, and the uncovering of important gene mutations in patients who suffer from malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors. By grasping the full extent of our client’s work, we were able to firmly convince the USCIS that our client’s EB-1A petition deserved to be approved and that her research plays a pivotal role in progressing the country’s medical and drug development sectors.
