Mike Lucido, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Transplant Clinic



Mike Lucido is a recent graduate from the Emory Psychiatry residency program, where he was Co-Chief Resident of the research track. He obtained his undergraduate education at the Florida Institute of Technology from 2005 to 2010, receiving degrees in psychology and chemistry, and completed a combined MD/PhD program at SUNY Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine in 2017. His doctoral research in structural biology focused on the effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin, on the function of enzymes. During residency, he worked with Dr. Zhexing Wen to study the effects of inflammation on dopamine in depressed patients using advanced induced pluripotent stem cell technology. He remains interested in the intersection of immunology and psychiatry, particularly as it relates to serious mental illness and refractory psychiatric conditions, and is looking forward to exploring this further while working as a psychiatrist in the transplant clinic.
