Connecticut Medal of Technology has been awarded to a Yale scientist for his pioneering contributions


In honor of Craig M. Crews, who is a professor at Yale in the fields of chemistry, pharmacology, and management, in addition to serving as the John C. Malone Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, he was awarded the 2022 Connecticut Medal of Technology on May 13, according to an announcement made by the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering (CASE).

Crews will be presented with his award on May 26th at the CASE annual meeting. The Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT) will also be awarded a medal (CCAT).

His groundbreaking study on targeted protein degradation led to the development of a new pharmaceutical sector, which was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry (TPD). The biotech firm Proteolix was created in 2003 by Crews and Raymond Deshaies, who is currently a senior vice president at Amgen. There is a new treatment for multiple myeloma that was developed by Proteolix. In 2012, the FDA approved the therapy for use in the United States.

The Connecticut Medal of Technology is given to individuals, teams, companies, and nonprofits who have made outstanding contributions to Connecticut’s and the nation’s economic, environmental, and social well-being by promoting technology, innovating in the field of technology, or developing the technological workforce.

On behalf of the whole state, I want to thank Professor Crews and Ron Angelo and his staff at CCAT for contributing to making Connecticut the great state we know it — and congratulate them both on winning Connecticut’s highest accolade for technological achievement,” stated Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont.

My name is Zaid Quraishi. I pride myself on being a meticulous and organized individual who has done his Bachelors in Medical Technology and currently pursuing my Master's in the same course from Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences. I belong to the beautiful valley of Kashmir, and my hometown is Srinagar. I am the elder sibling of my younger brother. As far as my strengths are concerned, I am effectively communicative, optimistic, reliable, a team player, and time-efficient. My weaknesses are that I am an honest person and I tend to be blunt, and sometimes, I like to work alone. I am passionate about content writing, online gaming, and learning new things, especially languages (currently German). I have written two papers for my University degree, which helped me immensely in learning how to write effectively. I am confident in my writing skills, and I can effectively pour my thoughts out in writing and express myself so that the reader relates to it and is intrigued by the content. I love to play with my pet cat, and she is a darling to me. The thing that I dislike the most is being distracted when you are in the zone. Currently, I am a content writer in a dynamic work environment at Shouzy, ready to improve readers' satisfaction and increase retention levels.
