About the Metabolic Mind Award Program 

The Baszucki Brain Research Fund (the Fund) has been working to transform outcomes in the treatment of mental health disorders. The Metabolic Mind Award Program recognizes individual contributions in the emerging field of metabolic psychiatry.

In August 2022, the Milken Institute and the Fund released a request for applications seeking individuals who are building awareness around ketogenic metabolic therapy for mental health by treating patients, developing training programs, writing, speaking, teaching, storytelling, and advocating. Up to 10 individuals will be awarded $100,000 for their exceptional contributions to the advancement of ketogenic metabolic therapy for mental health disorders. Awardees will be announced in fall 2022.
