Michael Lutter, MD, PhD
Michael Lutter, MD, PhD is a Physician-Scientist who is Board Certified in Adult Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He graduated from the MD/PhD program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2003 and then entered the Psychiatry Residency Program at the University of Texas Southwestern where he first became interested in the study and treatment of eating disorders. Upon completion of his Psychiatry Residency, he received additional post-doctoral training in neuroscience and human genetics.
Since 2008, Dr. Lutter’s Research Program has focused on identifying the genetic and neurobiologic basis of eating disorders while continuing to treat patients with eating disorders. He has published 27 original research articles and written 8 book chapters and review articles. His research has contributed several major findings to the field of eating disorder research including identifying the first two rare genetic mutations associated with the risk of developing anorexia nervosa, demonstrating a role for the ‘hunger’ hormone ghrelin in mediating the effects of calorie restriction on mood and food reward, and defining a shared neural circuit for behavioral compulsivity and feeding that may contribute to the obsessionality frequently observed in patients with eating disorders.
Dr. Lutter joined Eating Recovery Center, Dallas in 2016 with the goal of translating the latest research findings into improved treatments. Dr. Lutter shifted his clinical focus and moved his many talents toward the care of patients at Eating Recovery Center, San Antonio in 2018.
