We won a case for an Outstanding Researcher who had over 23 years of research experience. She was considered one of the foremost experts in the field of medical research. She has an extensive publication record along with a multitude of presentations. This applicant was working on such illnesses as asthma, allergies and other lung ailments. Her innovative and pioneering work was recognized by the number of manuscripts accepted for publication in high impact journals. She also provided evidence to support her case in the following criteria: honors/awards, professional memberships, publications, contributions and acting as a judge. We received an RFE requesting further documentation to support her already well-documented qualifications. Upon submitting several additional reference letters noting her outstanding qualifications, the I-140 was approved.
