Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much! I’m so happy to work with you on my case and make it succeed!”

On February 21st, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Computational Biology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computational Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: February 21st, 2018

Processing Time: 12 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles in the bag, there is no denying that our client—a postdoctoral associate from China—has expansive expertise and experience in the field of computational biology. When he first approached us to help him prepare and file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we carefully analyzed his credentials before deciding to take on his case. Once we confirmed that we could build a solid case for him, we countersigned the retainer agreement and started gathering a wealth of information pertaining to his research.

By the time we were ready to file our client’s EB1A petition, we had collected an array of useful data. Amongst other things, we detailed our client’s work on designing software techniques and tools to study biological data and phenomena. We also noted the 136 times his research was cited as well as the 27 times he had judged the work of his peers at the time of filing. Further, we listed reasons why our client’s work has an enormous impact on healthcare, pharmaceutical and biomedical research, and the study of biology as a whole.

To back up our argument that our client is an extraordinary researcher, we encouraged him to get in touch with several of his peers and ask for recommendation letters. Our client returned with six signed letters, all of which advocated for the approval of his EB1A petition. According to one of our client’s recommenders: “[Client’s] essential research in computational biology thus advanced his professional sphere and supports the continued efforts of other scientists studying medical conditions. In this way, he is an invaluable figure working in the United States of America.”

Overall, our goal was to convince the USCIS that our client is a researcher whose achievements have been widely recognized in the field.  Just 12 days after we filed our client’s individualized EB1A petition, the USCIS approved it. The reason for such speedy adjudication is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a top-up option that guarantees action will be taken on the petition in 15 days as opposed to several months. We congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his EB1A petition.
