Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a Chinese postdoctoral researcher in the field of biomedical engineering secure an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval just 10 days after filing. To some degree, this prompt adjudication was the result of our team’s professional efforts in presenting our client’s achievements in the field of biomedical engineering. Additionally, she had opted to upgrade her EB-1A case to Premium Processing (PP), which significantly shortened the overall timeline.

When we examined our client’s credentials, we found that her innovative ideas are at the forefront of research in biomedicine. Her pioneering research has stimulated progress on new neural techniques and has paved the way for optimization of these techniques. To prove the legitimacy of our client’s credentials to the USCIS, her EB1A petition packet included information on her research experiments and how these experiments have brought a change for the betterment of the US.

Additionally, our client’s petition observed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and exemplary record of authorship. At the time of filing, she had 23 peer-reviewed scientific articles to her name. Moreover, her work has been cited at least 345 times by numerous researchers around the world. With the goal to further bolster our client’s petition, we incorporated strong recommendation letters from top experts in her field. According to one of them, our client “… has a sturdy educational background that makes her question current neuroscience knowledge and methods”.

We congratulate our client on securing an EB-1A petition approval, and we thank her for retaining our services for the I-485 application. At the time of writing, we had already filed our client’s application and we join her as she awaits good news from the USCIS.
