Elena Gross

Speaker at KetoLadies 2019

Neuroscientist, Researcher and PhD Candidate

I have a background in Neuroscience (University of Oxford) and am currently finishing a PhD in clinical research at the University of Basel, Switzerland. I’m also a migraine patient and a keto enthusiast. Frustrated by the available treatment options for migraines, my research career has focused on better understanding this common and debilitating disease, with the ultimate goal on improving clinical care. I am particularly interested in the role of energy metabolism in migraine pathophysiology, as well as other neurological diseases. My lab  and I are currently conducting a randomised controlled clinical trial on the efficacy and safety of exogenous ketone bodies in migraine prevention, the first controlled trial on ketone body salts.
