SALT LAKE CITY — University of Utah and Utah State undergraduate students presented research posters to the Legislature this week.

"Research Posters on the Hill" was displayed in the state Capitol rotunda for legislators and for the public.

The event, now in its 14th year, gives lawmakers the opportunity to see the high-caliber research projects coming from undergraduate students at the state's two public research institutions, and the value of funding from the state to support higher education.
