EB-1B Outstanding Researcher Petition Approved Along with Simultaneously Filed Green Card Application

EB1B Outstanding Researcher Petition was approved for the permanent research position of Research Associate for individual conducting research on the botulinum toxin for the purpose of biodefense in the academic field of pharmacokinetics (what the body does to a drug) and pharmacodynamics (what a drug does to the body).

The I-485 Adjustment of Status Application simultaneously filed with the I-140 Petition was approved at the same time as the I-140 Petition. Total processing time from the date of filing to receipt of the green card was 4 months at the USCIS Texas Service Center. Our Philadelphia Immigration Lawyer filed the I-140 Petition on behalf of a prominent university in Massachusetts.
