Success Stories: North America Immigration Law Group Helped a Chinese Research Scientist Working in the Field of Cancer Biology Secure EB-1A Petition Approval


Client’s Testimonial:

“Great news. Thank you very much for all your help on my case. I am very satisfied with your professional service.”

On January 9th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Cancer Biology (Approval Notice).


General Field: Cancer 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: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: January 9th, 2017

Processing Time: 11 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

In a short span of 11 days, the USCIS approved the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition filed by North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) on behalf of a research scientist from China. Filing the EB1A petition with Premium Processing (PP) allowed our client to have action taken on his petition within 15 days instead of the standard 4-9 months.

Before agreeing to represent this research scientist, our team carefully reviewed his credentials to determine his suitability for EB1A. Once we confirmed that we could help our client obtain petition approval, we countersigned the legal contract. Our goal was to put together an EB1A petition packet that comprised of a wealth of information pertaining to our client’s exceptional research career in the field of cancer biology.

Contents of our client’s EB-1A petition packet:

Our client’s vast expertise in the field of cancer biology is focused on molecular and cell signaling in cancer. We highlighted his strong background in biomedical science and pharmacology and affirmed how his research helps the United States develop novel methods to curb cancer metastasis. Moreover, we emphasized the 1,009 citations his 24 peer-reviewed scientific articles had received. Furthermore, our client had strong peer review experience: 27 reviews conducted for top-ranking journals in the field. The fact that only respected experts in the field are invited to conduct peer review work for scientific journals highlighted our client’s competence as a top cancer biologist.

Alongside these details were four recommendation letters provided by our client’s peers. These experts endorsed the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by making statements such as this: “As made evident by the high quality and importance of his work, [Client] is one of the most outstanding scientists currently working in the field of bladder cancer…….As a result of its originality, [Client’s] work continues to be in high demand in the realm of cancer research.” These letters categorically expressed the international influence which our client’s work had garnered, and reiterated the various benefits the United States stands to gain by his continued presence in the country.

Based on our client’s impressive accomplishments in the field, it came as no surprise that the USCIS was compelled to approve his EB-1A petition. We congratulate our client for obtaining petition approval, and we thank him for retaining our firm to assist him with filing I-485 applications for himself and his wife. We assure them that we will continue to maintain high professional standards, and we look forward to helping them obtain their green cards.
