She completed a residency in internal medicine at Boston University Hospital followed by a research fellowship at the Framingham Heart Study and a master's degree in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Dr. Murabito is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and Director of the Research Clinic at the Framingham Heart Study. Dr Murabito is the recipient of R01 and R21 grant awards from the NIH/NIA to examine the epidemiology and genetics of longevity and healthy aging and reproductive aging. Her research interests also include the epidemiology and genetics of peripheral artery disease. Dr Murabito is a member of the Genetics of Longevity Consortium sponsored by NIA.

Dr. Murabito continues to practice primary care at Boston Medical Center.
