Deborah Meylor

Clinical Research Specialist, Senior

Mrs. Debbie Meylor joined the MURDOCK Study team in February 2012 as a Clinical Trials Assistant. She supports several cohort studies including memory and cognitive health and physical performance/healthy aging. Mrs. Meylor also brings skills in phlebotomy and sample collection, as well as bilingual abilities allowing her to work both with Spanish-speaking and English-speaking participants.

A native of Puerto Rico, Mrs. Meylor relocated to New York at an early age. After graduation, she had the opportunity to work at Quest Diagnostics as a specimen technician and soon became interested in medicine and helping others. She returned to school, trained in phlebotomy and learned about the MURDOCK Study through her friend and colleague, Perla Nunes.

Mrs. Meylor appreciates working for the MURDOCK Study because it gives her an opportunity to serve the community and work toward a healthier future for all. She enjoys spending time with her two children, Genesis and Christian, and helping youth in her church.
