Dr. Murabito is professor of medicine at BU Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and a primary care physician in the section of general internal medicine. She serves as interim Co-PI and Research Center Director of the Framingham Heart Study.

Dr. Murabito’s research focuses on the epidemiology and genetics of longevity and healthy aging. She leads the longevity and healthy aging working group in the CHARGE (Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology) consortium where she collaborates with colleagues from many other cohort studies and from many scientific disciplines.

Dr. Murabito is also a co-investigator for the NIA-funded Long Life Family Study. She uses tools available within the Framingham Heart Study to investigate biologic mechanisms of aging including inflammation. In addition, Dr. Murabito is investigating the use of mobile health devices in the Framingham Heart Study cohorts to understand how mHealth devices can be used to track and improve the health of older adults.
