General Field: Vestibular Research

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Nebraska

Approval Notice Date: September 20th, 2018

Processing Time: 8 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A research assistant professor from India hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him file an O1-A (Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement) petition. With a Ph.D. in Physiology and extensive experience conducting research on developing novel intervention strategies for treating vestibular disorders, our client checked all the boxes when it came to qualifying for O1-A. These are the three criteria he claimed:

-Original contributions: At the time of filing, our client’s work had already been cited 175 times. This proved the value of his work not just to other researchers but to the field of vestibular research as a whole.

-Authorship: The many years that our client has dedicated to the field has resulted in at least 18 peer-reviewed articles, all of which were published in well-known scientific journals.

-Judge of others’ work: To highlight the fact that our client’s ideas and opinions are respected by other researchers in the field, we presented his peer review record—5 reviews conducted by the time we filed his case.

Besides data on the three O1-A criteria mentioned above, our client’s petition dossier contained a wealth of information related to his research on the genetic aspects of vestibular function and the development of novel intervention strategies for treating vestibular disorders. His work has an enormous impact on the biomedical sciences and the biopharmaceutical industry, particularly in the advanced studies of the genes that regulate the growth and development of hair cell stereocilia. In a bid to further fortify our client’s O1-A petition, we also included three independent advisory opinions and one dependent recommendation contributed by experts from well-known institutions around the world. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s O-1A and supported our argument that he is indeed an individual with extraordinary ability.

Thanks to premium processing (PP), our client received notification of case approval merely 8 days after we filed the personalized O1-A petition on his behalf. We thank him for choosing us to help him attain this nonimmigrant visa, and we wish him best as he conducts further vestibular research in the United States.
