Case Summary:

A Chinese postdoctoral researcher approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for help with her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We agreed to represent her after evaluating the strength of her credentials. The first step in preparing her EB1A petition dossier involved assembling as much information as we could regarding her professional achievements. We did this by focusing on a few key points:

  1. We highlighted our client’s specialized research on identifying novel imaging biomarkers of cancer microenvironment. Her work unravels the etiology of cancer tumorigenesis and helps frame effective treatment responses. Her work involves developing MRI methods that are sensitive to oxygenation which can effectively be used for cancer imaging in humans and animal models. Undoubtedly, our client’s efforts positively impact the United States’ healthcare industry and public health in general.
  2. Our client’s publication and citation records are highly impressive and reflect her position as a scientist of the highest caliber. At the time of filing, our client had amassed 167 citations to her work and had published 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles in high impact journals. These credentials proved to USCIS that our client is a frontrunner in the medical imaging domain.
  3. Furthermore, our client had conducted 18 reviews for 6 prestigious scientific journals. This peer review experience strengthened our client’s position as an experienced medical imaging expert.
  4. We also incorporated recommendation lettersinto her EB-1A petition packet to highlight our argument that she is a force to be reckoned with in the field of medical imaging. These letters were contributed by other influential experts in the field. The contents of one such letter stated that: “[Client] is a singularly gifted researcher of molecular imaging. She also possesses a unique ability to reinvent pre-clinical and clinical modes of tumor detection, marking her as a central figure in cancer research and treatment. [Client] has already trod new ground in the sensitive detection of key tumor features, providing a veritable guarantee that her work will continue to benefit this cause.”

Once all the documents were ready, we mailed our client’s EB1A packet to the USCIS. Our client received notification of EB1A approval exactly 76 days (2 months and 17 days) after filing. Thereafter, we also assisted her with filing her I-485 application. As she waits for action to be taken on her application to become an American permanent resident, we congratulate her for securing a highly sought-after EB-1A approval notice and hope that her green card dream will be fulfilled soon.
