Professor Mayne's primary research interests are in the area of nutritional epidemiology of chronic diseases, and more specifically in nutrition and cancer prevention and survivorship. She is trained in nutritional biochemistry, epidemiology, and clinical trials, and has an interest in biomarkers of nutritional status. Professor Mayne's program of research has emphasized the role of dietary factors in the etiology of several major cancers. Her work involves both observational studies and intervention trials, with a particular emphasis on carotenoids. She also studies other lifestyle factors (e.g., tobacco, alcohol, tanning) and their interaction with diet and genetics in cancer risk.
