On April 23, 2013, University Honors seniors presented the results of their capstone projects in poster format. Honors projects from all five UMD colleges, 19 in all, were represented. The project topics are diverse and included graphic design, cosmic ray shielding, mental health services, antibiotic resistance of bacteria, gene expression, lupus treatment and the FDA, the history and culture of Native Hawaiians, and sumo robot wrestling, to name a few. University Honors is a program for highly motivated students to engage actively in the liberal education mission of the university.
