I'm Dr. Elena Gross, a neuroscientist, PhD in clinical research and most importantly - a former chronic migraineur. The lack of tolerable and efficacious treatment options for migraine led me to pursue a MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford and a PhD in Clinical Research at the University of Basel, with the goal of having better understanding of this common and debilitating disease and ultimately improving clinical care.
I am particularly passionate about the therapeutic benefits of ketosis and other nutritional interventions, the role of mitochondrial functioning and energy metabolism in brain health & neurological diseases (particularly migraine), as well as increasing our health span via disease prevention.
I am the inventor of four patents, founder & CEO of Brain Ritual and creator of the Mastering Migraine Community. My migraine research papers have been published in high-ranking journals, such as Nature Neurology.
