Case Summary:

This EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case involved a prominent postdoctoral fellow immersed in the field of biophysics. Born in China, our client has many years of experience conducting research, and has established a name for himself as one of the top biophysicists in his field.

With a Ph.D. in Biophysics and Computational Biology and various research projects focused on the molecular mechanisms and pathways of membrane transport proteins, our client had the credentials to file his I-140 petition under EB1A, which has a very high standard of law. We worked diligently to put together a strong EB-1A petition packet that highlighted his talents. Our presentation contained the following:

  1. Publication & Citation Record: When we filed the case, our client’s work had gathered 160 citations. Furthermore, he had already published 10 scientific articles and three book chapters.
  2. Encouraging Testimonials: When we first took on our client’s case, we prompted him to touch base with other influential researchers in his field and request for recommendation letters. We needed third-party opinions on the value of our client’s work to the field, and approaching fellow biophysicists was the best way to do it. Our client managed to obtain six recommendation letters, one of which stated, “Overall, these achievements of [Client] are indicative of a researcher who has reached the top of his field and is likely to continue in his path of success. Because of this, he is a great asset to the scientific community of biophysics and computational biology researchers in the United States and therefore he should be permitted to persist in his research efforts.”
  3. Peer Review Experience: The importance of our client’s insights was demonstrated through the 18 peer reviews he conducted for several prominent scientific journals. Judging the work of others is a task reserved for leaders in the field and our client’s extensive experience doing so attests to the value of his opinions to both American and international biophysicists.

Overall, the USCIS only spent 6 days adjudicating our client’s EB-1A petition before granting their approval. The compressed timeline had to do with the fact that our client chose to file his case under Premium Processing (immigration officers must take action on PP cases within 15 days as opposed to 4-9 months for regularly filed petitions). We congratulate our client on receiving an approval notice, and we wish him well as he continues to progress his field of biophysics.
