The National Center for Simulation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford seeks
proposals for our inaugural pilot project program.  The program awards seed
grants to innovative and meritorious projects that will accelerate the use
of simulation in rehabilitation research.  Our intent is to engage
rehabilitation research experts to demonstrate the use of biomechanical
simulations in novel areas and to help enhance the OpenSim software for
rehabilitation science.

Pilot project awardees may request funding (up to $25,000) for their
research or access to additional NCSRR resources (e.g., software engineering
support).  In addition, the program launches awardees into leadership roles
within the NCSRR network.  Projects should have a strong scientific
component and demonstrate a clear alignment with the NCSRR’s mission.

Research proposals (up to 3 pages) should provide a scientific description
of the project to be performed and convey the impact on rehabilitation and
the biomechanical simulation community.  Applications must also include a
description of funding and other support requested.  More information and
the application packet can be found at the following website:
All application materials must be received by midnight on July 15, 2011.
 Winners will be announced by September 2011 with funding to start in Fall

Best Wishes,
