On February 24th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Cancer Cell Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cancer Cell Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Case Summary: 

Texas Service Center (TSC) only spent 6 days reviewing this EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition before granting their approval. Largely because our client chose to file her case under Premium Processing, the average adjudication timeline was significantly reduced—the average processing time is usually between 4-9 months.

Respectable Recommenders:

A significant portion of our meticulously prepared EB-1A petition packet was composed of six recommendation letters contributed by influential biologists working in the field of cancer cell biology. These experts willingly furnished us with testimonials attesting to the essentiality of our client’s research on biomarkers to assist in early cancer detection, genetic and lifestyle risks for cancer, and cancer chemoresistance. They firmly stated that our client’s findings are important to not just the research community, but to the United States. Here are selected quotes from three of these letters:

  • “[Client] has furthermore advanced the field by assisting her fellow researchers through her peer-review and advisory board work […] [Client] plainly has a remarkable record of service to the field. These contributions are exemplary of her exceptional abilities as a cancer cell biologist.”
  • “[Client’s] contributions are a reflection of her exceptional and unique skills and abilities. In fact, [Client] has demonstrated capabilities that far exceed the limited skillsets of the majority of her peers.
  • “… it is absolutely of paramount importance to the nation, both in terms of public health and the economy, to support [Client’s] continued research.”

Quality Qualifications:

As a postdoctoral associate from India working in the field of cancer cell biology, our client is heavily involved in addressing some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the development and progression of cancer. She is particularly well-known for her research on the effect of cigarette smoke on the metastasis of pancreatic cancer at the molecular level.

North America Immigration Law Group ( proved that her work contributes to cancer research in the United States, which has an overall impact on the health of all Americans. We backed up this claim by demonstrating our client’s many accomplishments throughout her illustrious career. When we filed the case, our client had 16 publications that had collected 260 citations, and 15 instances of peer review service.

Well-deserved Finish:

We are pleased that we helped our client get her I-140 petition (first step towards permanent residency) approved. We are currently helping her and her spouse file I-485 applications (second and final step), and we look forward to welcoming them as permanent residents.
