Elena Gross, PhD

Brain Ritual

Dr. Elena Gross is a neuroscientist with a PhD in clinical research who has firsthand experience living with chronic migraine. The lack of tolerable and efficacious treatment options for migraine led her 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.

Dr. Gross is passionate about the therapeutic benefits of ketosis and other nutritional interventions, the role of mitochondrial functioning and energy metabolism in brain health and neurological diseases (particularly migraine), as well as increasing our health span via disease prevention. She holds four patents, and is the founder and CEO of Brain Ritual. Her migraine research papers have been published in high-ranking journals such as Nature Reviews Neurology and Scientific Reports.
