Client’s Testimonial:

On February 8th, 2016, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Molecular Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Molecular Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: February 8th, 2016

Case Summary:


In this EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers Alien of Extraordinary) case, our client was a research scientist from China who hired North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an I-140 petition. Her employer—a private company—agreed to be her petitioner.

With a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, 204 citations to her 10 publications, and 25 instances of peer review service, our client had the necessary qualifications to file her case under the EB-1B visa category. To further strengthen her case, we advised her to contact other influential molecular biologists to contribute letters of support. One letter said, in part, “Since my entire career is in biotechnology and molecular biology, I have been privy to the progresses being made in this burgeoning field as well as to those exceptional scientists moving the field forward. [Client] is a clear standout in this respect.” The EB-1B petition dossier that we submitted to the USCIS contained proof that our client’s research on cancer epigenetics, biomarker discovery, and genetic disease modeling advances clinical research and therapeutic design in the United States.

Because our client chose to file her case under Premium Processing (an option only available for EB1 cases), she received an approval notice from the USCIS merely 11 days after we filed the case on her behalf. We would like to congratulate our client on getting one step closer to her green card.
