General Field: Computational Neuroscience

Case Summary:

Less than 7 months after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for an Italian Postdoctoral Associate, the USCIS granted his case approval. After evaluating his extensive credentials and many years of experience conducting research in the field of computational neuroscience, we determined that we could help him secure the national interest waiver.

Our client’s research is of great importance because it furthers our understanding of the brain, its functional aspects in relation to cellular mechanisms, the pathogenesis of the neurological diseases, and the pharmacological targets for their treatment. His publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of computational neuroscience. We submitted evidence of his publication of 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter which accumulated 55 citations in support with the fact that many of his papers have been among the most-cited in the field.

In an effort to further strengthen our client’s NIW petition, we also included strong letters of support from other prominent researchers in the petition packet. In our experience, recommendation letters are very important in paving the way to I-140 case approval. This is what one of the fellow experts in the field noted in his letter of support: “The advantages of [client]’s works are myriad and, in fact, extend far beyond the field of neuroscience.[…] Seeing that he has already brought about appreciable advancements in this area of research, it is clear that no scholar is better suited to overcome obstacles related to brain-inspired computing than [client].”

With over 10,000 approved I-140 cases in the bag, our firm has unprecedented insight into what the USCIS is looking for when adjudicating petitions, and we are able to provide convincing argument and thorough documentation to the immigration officers. We congratulate our client for overcoming this challenge in the green card process, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his I-140 NIW case.
