        Overview 
        Narrative

        Our Undersea World

        Underwater Photography by Richard Konz

        I was attracted to marine life since I was old enough to read my first Jacques Cousteau book. I have been scuba diving for over 36 years and photographing undersea life for over aver 20 years. With the onset of digital photography and videography, underwater photography has become more accessable than ever. I hope you enjoy some of my images.

        Richard Konz

















        As Director of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility, I aminvolved with the supervision of an excellent Core and staff, assisting Investigators in designing experiments, data analysis and interpretation. Our Core is an educational resource as well. I have designed and implemented anassortment of training programs for our Graduate students, Post Docs, Technical staff and Senior Investigators in DNA cell cycle analysis,
        multicolor data acquisition and analysis as well as analytical techniques and instrument specific training.

        I have been arranging an active seminar series program sponsored by the Core Facility with
        speakers such as Howard Shapiro, M.D., Mario Roederer, Ph.D.and Alice Givan, Ph.D.
        Beginning Fall of 2005, I instructed the first Flow and Image Cytometry course to be offered at UMass Medical
        School as part of the Immunology and Virology Program. The course now includesbasic and advanced confocal microscopy, FLIM, FRAP and FRET and a hands on lab section.
