Sam Sondalle ’11 publishes research work

Sam Sondalle ’11 of New Haven, Connecticut, has a significant publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The paper, “Fanconi anemia protein FANCI functions in ribosome biogenesis,” was published Jan. 28.

Sondalle is the first author. Several medical news outlets picked up on the research, including medicalxpress.com, healthcanal.com and Yale News, which stated: “A chance exchange between Yale scientists has led to new insight into the causes of Fanconi anemia (FA), a rare but devastating disease of childhood marked by a failure of bone marrow to produce new blood cells. …

“In a new paper, (Susan J. Baserga, professor of molecular biophysics and biochemistry, of genetics, and of therapeutic radiology) and Samuel Sondalle found that one of the proteins linked to FA called Fanci was involved in initiating the cell’s production of ribosomes, indicating there may be at least two different underlying causes of the disease.”

Sondalle is in his final year of the M.D./Ph.D. program at Yale University. At Ripon, he majored in chemistry and biology.
