    Melissa (Dilley) Ryant has been a member of the Huntington's Disease Society of America's (HDSA) National Youth Alliance (NYA) since attending her first convention in 2013. From that point, Melissa volunteered to serve on the NYA board for 6 years. Her mother had HD and was symptomatic her entire life, until she passed away in 2008. A few years later, Melissa tested gene negative at the age of 24. That led her to reaching out to the NE Ohio HDSA Chapter and since then she has continued to be heavily involved in the community by providing support to youth and parents affected by HD. She recently completed her first marathon by running for the HDSA team at the Chicago Marathon in October of 2019.

    David Rubinsztein is Professor of Molecular Neurogenetics and a UK Dementia Research Institute Professor at the University of Cambridge. He is Deputy Director of the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research. Dr. Rubinsztein earned his MB ChB, BSc(Med)Hons, and PhD degrees from University of Cape Town. He came to Cambridge in 1993 as a Senior Registrar in genetic pathology and was the first person to complete formal training in this field in the UK. His research is focused in the field of autophagy, particularly in the context of neurodegenerative diseases. His laboratory pioneered the strategy of autophagy upregulation as a possible therapeutic approach in various neurodegenerative diseases, and has identified drugs and novel pathways that may be exploited for this objective. He has made contributions that reveal the relevance of autophagy defects as a disease mechanism and to the basic cell biology of this important catabolic process. Rubinsztein was elected Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences (2004),

    Dr. Baranger is a Postdoctoral Scholar with Dr. Erika Forbes, at the University of Pittsburgh. He studies how risk factors for psychopathology - particularly early life stress and genetic risk - influence brain development. His work has so far focused on brain structure and reward processing, with an emphasis on better understanding the neurobiology of substance use and depression. He completed his PhD in Neuroscience at Washington University in St Louis, where he worked with Dr. Ryan Bogdan and Dr. Deanna Barch. His dissertation was on the use of neural biomarkers (i.e. reward reactivity and brain structure) to disentangle the causes and downstream consequences of alcohol use. In his postdoc he has been studying how early life trauma and environmental stress influence adolescent development of reward processing, and its relationship to depression.

    Ed is a consultant neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and Associate Director of the UCL Huntington’s Disease Centre, where his research team is focused on accelerating drug development through discovering new biomarkers for Huntington’s disease. He leads an MRC-supported longitudinal biomarker study, HD-CSF, and is Global Chief Investigator of the HDClarity study of cerebrospinal fluid in Huntington’s disease. He led the development of the first measurement platform to quantify the mutant huntingtin protein in cerebrospinal fluid and the discovery of neurofilament light protein as the first blood biomarker to predict onset of Huntington’s. He is a senior advisor and investigator in the Ionis / Roche programme to lower the production of mutant huntingtin, the cause of Huntington’s disease. He won the Huntington Society of Canada Community Leadership Award in 2012, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America Researcher of the Year Award in 2014 and Huntington Study Group Insight
