General Field: Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Processing Time: 11 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing an I-140 petition under NIW (National Interest Waiver) visa category. Our client held a Ph.D. in biomechanics and mechanical engineering and researching the field of magnetic resonance imaging which undoubtedly paved his way to achieving the NIW approval. The fact that his research on the application of MRI in medicine aids the United States as it relates to the detection and treatment of atherosclerosis (the hardening of the arteries), atherosclerosis is capable of producing life-threatening blockages. Thus, his adapted magnetic resonance imaging techniques have transformed the field’s approach to scanning for atherosclerosis and have singled him out as a leading researcher among his peers. We were convinced that he is an ideal candidate for the EB-2 NIW petition. Therefore, we confirmed to assist him by preparing a strong case on his behalf, and we did this by including the below-mentioned details in his NIW petition packet:

  • To highlight the impact of our client’s research, we recorded the 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored) he published in some of the top-ranked journals, which altogether gathered 96 citations from fellow experts in the field. Not only did he maintain an impressive publication and citation record, but he also established his elevated stand in the field as an active peer reviewer in the scientific community for highly acclaimed journals. We noted that he had already conducted 3 peer- reviews for distinguishing journals in the magnetic resonance imaging field.
  • Furthermore, we demonstrated the significance of our client’s work in the field as it received funding grants from leading government agencies, including the National Natural Science Foundation of China. These grants are reserved for research addressing critical problems in magnetic resonance imaging, and thus this proves the urgent need for his continued research contributions to the United States.

To further verify his testimonies, we encouraged him to obtain a few letters of support from fellow experts in the field, and fortunately, five of the experts were obliged to sign in his recommendation letters. The following excerpt has been plucked from one of the letters:

“[Client’s] research has addressed the prominence of the said disease by improving the field’s black blood scanning methods, subsequently improving the work of his peers. In order to address other prevalent diseases through efficient and accurate medical imaging, his research must receive backing from the United States.”

We are truly happy that our client received his NIW approval without an RFE (request for evidence) from USCIS. Our team’s efficient and effective methods in devising I-140 petitions once again resulted in a positive outcome. We thank him for choosing to work with our law firm and allowing us to be a part of his success story. We also wish him the best in his future endeavors.
