Case Summary:

A prominent professor of medicine, whose recommendation letter we incorporated into our EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) presentation to the USCIS, had this to say about our client’s investigations: “[Client] is among the best cardiovascular researchers at work today. She is actively involved in projects that are resulting in the development of the next generation of treatment options for millions of American heart patients.” Several other experts in the field lent their support through recommendation letters, which served as evidentiary proof that our client is one of the most influential researchers in her field of molecular biology.  

Our client, a senior research associate from India, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her obtain a green card. Her employer—a nonprofit research organization—agreed to serve as the petitioner. At a glance, our client had suitable credentials to file her case under EB-1B: three master’s degrees, various publications (7 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 textbook chapter), numerous conference presentations, and 14 instances of assessing the work of other molecular biologists for half a dozen scientific periodicals. However, she needed our professional help to perfect her EB-1B petition, which we did efficiently and effectively. Besides documenting her accomplishments, we also accounted for her research on uncovering the underlying mechanisms of heart failure, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and other disorders, and proved to the USCIS that her work progresses the United States medical sector.

We are currently helping our client with the final portion of the green card process: the I-485 application. We wish her all the best and thank her for selecting our firm to help her attain permanent residency.
