Case Summary:

A postdoctoral associate from China contracted North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Thanks to Premium Processing, our client received an approval notice from the USCIS just nine days after we filed the case.

As part of our services, we helped our client narrow down a list of potential recommenders who could provide strong recommendation letters to fortify our EB-1A petition packet. The six recommenders who agreed to lend their support are experts in the field of biochemistry, and like our client, their opinions are respected throughout the field. We used these letters as additional evidence to the abundance of information that we had gathered on our client’s successful professional exploits.

“[Client’s] educational background is vast and includes expertise in cell biology, biotechnology, and even computer science, as he has mastery of several programming languages.”

Our client’s Ph.D. in Cell Biology clearly shows that he has dedicated many years to mastering the core of his field. His research efforts serve as further proof that he is a leading researcher whose contributions benefit not just other biochemists, but the entire scientific community.

“…a significant amount of citations in the fields of cell biology and biochemistry and attests to the widespread implementation and influence of [Client’s] research.”

Our comprehensive EB-1A petition packet also highlighted our client’s citation, publication and peer review record. At the time of filing, our client had published 13 scientific journal articles that had gathered 246 citations, and had conducted 22 peer reviews for multiple high impact scientific journals.

“The first project is a continuing work that seeks to build and apply a novel imaging system in order to more effectively study lipid, protein, and small biomolecule dynamics…”

Our legal team paid special attention to understanding and detailing our client’s various research projects on the molecular mechanism underlying phototransduction, neuropeptide sorting, lipid metabolism, and aging. We established that his work contributes to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of debilitating, fatal, and costly health conditions, ultimately providing the tools necessary for lowering mortality rates and medical expenditures associated with these diseases in the United States.

“[Client’s] research in this area would contribute greatly to the medical research in the United States and it is worth allowing his work to continue unimpededly.”

We are pleased that the USCIS approved our client’s EB-1A petition. We believe that our client’s strong credentials and our meticulously presented petition lent a hand in the approval process. We would like to congratulate our client on this milestone and we wish him the best as he continues to advance his field of biochemistry.
