Case Summary:

Our client, a research scientist, is one of the preeminent DNA damage experts in neurobiology, and she has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. When she approached North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we asked her to send us the package of her credentials for a thorough evaluation. After we assessed her incredible research focus on DNA damage-related neurodegeneration and has already greatly advanced the national interest through the development of exifone, a therapeutic she showed to improve cognitive performance, we were, therefore, certain that her research is essential in the United States for the treatment or prevention of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. We agreed to prepare her I-140 petition since our objective was to highlight the utmost importance of her research due to its direct applicability in global efforts to address the treatment and prevention of neurodegenerative disease development.

Her EB1A petition package consisted of the following details:

  • We noted that she held a Ph.D. and M.Sc. in DNA damage and neurodegeneration and that she has spent many years studying issues related to DNA damage and cognitive decline and is regarded as an authority in the field. The field has recognized her authority by inviting her to review and evaluate the work of her peers no fewer than 15 times. In fact, she serves on the reviewer board of highly acclaimed journals, where she plays an even larger role in qualifying the work of her peers.
  • Besides, she accumulated 862 citations from the impressive record of the 16 peer-reviewed articles, 1 book chapter, and 1 patent application she published, which have been cited by other experts in the field in at least 58 countries. Considering the diverse and high-profile channels through which she has published her work, it is not surprising that it has been widely disseminated throughout the scientific community paving her way to an elevated status among others in the field of neurobiology.
  • Furthermore, we specified that her research work has received funding support from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Neurodegeneration Consortium (NDC), and the Glenn Award for Research in Biological Mechanisms of Aging, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and Tau Consortium. These leading organizations are multi-institutional, supporting top-tier researchers across the U.S. in their neurodegeneration investigations. The Glenn Award supports innovative research into the biology of aging. Recipients are nominated and chosen by an anonymous scientific board, bestowing particular renown on awardees. Hence, our client’s research into DNA damage-based neurodegeneration has achieved significant fame given the receipt of these awards.

Moreover, we added four recommendation letters to her petition packet. Extraordinary researchers from elite institutions confirm the groundbreaking nature of her finding and its significance in the treatment of neurodegenerative disease; her work has garnered substantial attention from within the scientific community. One of the experts stated:

“Considering the importance of [client’s] work in this regard, I believe that her continual contributions to the field, both in the form of her own original research and in her engagement with the work of others, is undoubtedly beneficial. I sincerely hope that she is given the opportunity to continue her work, as well as her collaboration with American uninterrupted.”

Our client achieved the EB-1A petition approval in just 11 days as she upgraded her EB1A case to the premium processing service to expedite the adjudication of her case. Premium Processing is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication (the case will be processed within 15 days instead of 9-12 months). Thus, we sincerely thank our client for choosing the WeGreened team to work on her I-140 application and allowing us to be part of this successful story.
