Joan Wennstrom Bennett has been a Distinguished Professor of Plant Biology and Pathology at Rutgers University since 2006. Prior to coming to Rutgers, she was on the faculty at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, for over thirty years. The Bennett laboratory studies the genetics and physiology of filamentous fungi. In addition to mycotoxins and other secondary metabolites, research focuses on the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted by fungi. These low molecular weight compounds are responsible for the familiar odors associated with the molds and mushrooms.

This summer, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering's NSF grant funded SMART REU Program has teamed undergraduate students from thirteen universities across eleven states with faculty and graduate student mentors from four Tulane School of Science and Engineering departments (Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemistry, and Physics and Engineering Physics) to participate in groundbreaking research projects.
