Dr. Murabito is a Professor of Medicine at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine and Co-PI at the Framingham Heart Study. Dr Murabito’s area of expertise is in epidemiology and genetic epidemiology. Her current research focuses on identifying the determinants of healthy aging and longevity and reproductive aging in the community including the investigation of genetic and genomic factors. She leads highly productive multidisciplinary international consortia including the Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomics Epidemiology (CHARGE) Aging and Longevity working group and the ReproGen Consortium. The Consortia bring together scientists interested in aging, longevity, and reproductive aging (menarche, menopause) and the relation of these traits to health outcomes and gene discovery.
Dr Murabito is also leading the introduction of mobile health into the Framingham Heart Study. She participated in an embedded physical activity trial using a smartphone app or activity tracker and would like to explore use of mHealth in older adults to improve health and function
Dr. Murabito continues to practice primary care at Boston Medical Center.
