On March 11th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).
General Field: Biochemistry
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Scholar
Country of Origin: China
Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California
Approval Notice Date: March 11th, 2017

Our client, a doctoral degree holder from China, works at a reputable university in the United States where she conducts impactful research in the Field of biochemistry. In pursuance of her dream of obtaining a green card, she approached our firm to help her put together and file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Firstly, we evaluated her credentials to determine if we could build a strong case for her and once we concluded that we could, we chose the following points to be included in her petition:
- At the time of filing, our client had 6 peer-reviewed publications which had already garnered 115 citations. This indicated the value of her research amongst her peers.
- She had also served as a peer reviewer for several high ranking journals and had conducted 20 reviews. This reflected her expertise in her chosen field of biochemistry.
- Our client’s research focuses on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of aging in model animal systems and thus helps the scientific community in the US understand the underlying processes involved with aging and thereby revealing methods for improving the wellbeing of elderly Americans.
- Our client had collected 6 letters of recommendation from various experts in the field of biochemistry to strengthen her case. These are the words of a prominent life sciences professor who staunchly endorsed our client’s credentials: “I believe that [Client] is a highly qualified scientist whose contributions to progress through her research make her stand out as an esteemed member of the scientific community.” Undoubtedly, these recommendation letters serve as a testament to our client’s immense worth to the United States.
Despite the strong case we had built, a NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny) was issued by the USCIS. Although responding to the NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny) was not a walk in the park, North America Immigration Law Group (WeGreened.com) efficiently and effectively dealt with it. This led to EB-1A petition approval and our client is now one step closer to obtaining permanent residency in the United States.
We are happy that we could bring this EB-1A case to a successful close and we wish our client the very best as she continues to progress the field of biochemistry.
