Case Summary:

“In my opinion, [Client] occupies the top echelon of peer scientists working in the contemporary immunology field. When one considers the very recent and very significant advances of [Client’s] work, it is clear that his research must be allowed to continue unabated.”

The statement above was made by a well-known assistant professor in the field of immunology. He, and several of his peers, volunteered their support for our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition by contributing recommendation letters. These letters played an important role in convincing the USCIS that our client’s work is of great importance to the United States.

What did the EB1A petition contain?

Our client, a postdoctoral associate from Brazil, has extensive experience in the field of immunology. The many years that he has spent conducting research has led to various accomplishments, which include, but are not limited to: 29 publications and 1,284 citations gathered from his work. Further, our client has judged the work of his peers 3 times.

Besides that, our client’s EB1A petition dossier contained an array of information on his research projects. For instance, we noted that his work is focused on the elucidation of novel therapeutic treatments of autoimmune diseases. We also demonstrated that his research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to better treat diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
