Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and considerable experience conducting fieldwork, a postdoctoral research associate from India seemed like a good candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Nevertheless, we carefully went through his credentials to be sure that we could build a solid EB1A case for him. Once we determined that we could, we initiated an attorney-client relationship.

Determining what to focus on:

The many years that our client has spent progressing the field of biomedical engineering have led to various achievements. As part of our services, we narrowed them down and determined what to include in his petition packet. Amongst other things, we detailed his 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 4 published abstracts, one conference article, and two book chapters. We also noted the 97 times his work had been cited by other researchers as well as the 45 times he assessed the work of his peers.

Compiling important evidence:

Additional information such as our client’s doctoral degree, CV, and employment letter were also included in the petition packet. Furthermore, we incorporated 4 recommendation letters volunteered by other expert biomedical engineers, all of whom supported the approval of our client’s EB1A petition. As an example, this is what a couple of them noted in their letters:

“The loss of his work would have consequences that affect not only other scientists, but the medical community and public health as well. [Client] is a leading researcher in modern biomedical engineering research, and his efforts provide compelling evidence of his production.”

“He is certainly one of the most prominent and accomplished individuals working in this area, and the continued improvement of the biomedical engineering field is dependent upon his future research.”

Presenting a strong case:

Overall, we persuaded the USCIS that our client’s findings on combining engineering and molecular biology approaches to investigate the mechanisms of heart valve disease are important to the United States. Convinced that he has risen to the top of the field, they approved his EB1A petition. As the icing on the cake, our client received the good news that his I-485 application had also been approved, making him an official US permanent resident. We congratulate him for completing the green card journey and thank him for working with us.
