Success Stories: French Scientist, In-Vitro Cancer Biologist Based in Massachusetts Receives NIW Petition Approval Followed by Green Card


Client’s Testimonial:

“It was long, it was stressful but eventually…it worked out! :)”

On May 31st, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Scientist, In Vitro Cancer Biologist (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cancer Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: In Vitro Cancer Biologist

Country of Origin: France

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: May 31st, 2017

Processing Time: 6 months, 8 days

Case Summary:

“Given that [Client]’s ongoing work on cancer therapy and the basic molecular mechanisms underlying cancer is vital to a critical public health problem in the United States, it must be permitted to continue.”

The above statement was extracted from a recommendation letter signed by a prominent expert in the field of cancer biology. This letter and several others were incorporated into our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition packet, and they offered the USCIS reasons why he deserved a green card.

Highlighting the significance of his research:

Our goal was to prove that our client has directly contributed to the field of cancer biology by providing the scientific community with a better understanding of therapeutic targets for the development of new cancer treatments. Focusing specifically on the molecular pathways that underlie the formation and progression of breast cancer, he has identified the novel regulation of a signaling pathway involved in the growth and migration of breast cancer cells, and developed a novel test for the detection of low-dose cancer-inducing molecules.

We also noted that our client’s extensive research has yielded 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 first-authored) that have been cited a total of 111 times by researchers from all around the globe.

Concurrent filing:

There are two steps in the green card process: filing an I-140 petition and an I-485 application. In this case, our client chose to file his I-140 and I-485 concurrently. As the USCIS was essentially given a head start in processing our client’s I-485 application, he received approval notices for his I-140 and I-485 merely 5 months apart. We congratulate him for securing a green card and we thank him for trusting us to help him accomplish this major goal.
