Volunteer: Rachel Burckhardt

Rachel Burckhardt received her PhD in Microbiology from the University of Georgia, USA. Her research focused on understanding the physiological role of acetyltransferase enzymes in various Gram-positive bacteria. She used a combination of genetic and biochemical techniques to elucidate how the chemical modification acetylation regulates acetate metabolism in Staphylococcus aureus. Burckhardt enjoys mentoring and science outreach in her spare time.

FEMS Journals and Open Access

Embracing an Open Future

All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
