Nicolas Grundmann

Founder

Nico is a practicing Emergency Medicine Physician, devoted to improving how healthcare systems operate for those who need it the most. Working in emergency rooms from suburban California, to inner-city New York, to rural West Virginia, Nico grew frustrated by how frequently he was treating acute symptoms of mental health without helping his patients with more sustained, long term solutions. Many years of working with ketamine as a safe medicine for sedation prompted continuous research of the drug’s efficacy for other conditions, including depression. Nico founded Ember Health as a way to help individuals take control of their lives, and contribute to the shaping of a field in line with his values.

Dr. Grundmann pursued his residency training at Kings County Hospital / SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, NY, and received his Medical Degrees and Masters in Business Administration from Stanford University. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and family.
