Thanks so much!!

On May 3rd, 2013, we received another EB2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoctoral Scientist in the field of Medicinal Chemistry (Approval Notice)

General Field: Medicinal Chemistry
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Scientist
National Origin: India
Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)
State Residing at the Time of Filing: North Carolina
Approval Notice Date: May 3, 2013
Processing Time: 3 weeks

Case Summary:

The average processing time for I-140 cases is 4-6 months. But on many occasions, we have cases approved far faster than the average processing time.

This client is a post-doctoral scientist from India in the field of medicinal chemistry, whose work has specifically focused on the areas of drug design and organic chemical synthesis. To ensure successful approval of this case, we submitted extensive documentation of the client’s highly significant contributions to the field of medicinal chemistry, including his authorship of 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in leading journals, garnering hundreds of citations. Additionally, our firm submitted several recommendation letters from experts in our client’s shared field. One of the independent recommenders noted “Despite advances in technology and understanding of biological systems, drug discovery is still an expensive, time-consuming, extremely challenging, and generally inefficient process. The rate of discovery of new therapeutics is very low, and the fact that [the Petitioner] has already identified many potential candidates for clinical use is a strong endorsement of his scientific abilities. In the field of drug discovery, where many studies and efforts stagnate, [the Petitioner] has continued to be innovative.”  With the strong petition letter and recommendation letters we prepared, his NIW case was approved in just three weeks.
