*Find OpenSim models for research and teaching*
We created a new Musculoskeletal Models
summarize key information (e.g. authors, intended uses, and download
info) for publicly available OpenSim models. The table is designed to help
users find models and help authors educate users. If you are a model
author, feel free to edit your entry. If there are models that we've
missed, please let us know and we'll add them to the list.

*Learn about a new DARPA funding opportunity on injury reduction and
performance enhancement*
A new funding opportunity<https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-BAA-13-43/listing.html>has
recently been released for the DARPA Warrior Web program, which seeks
to develop a soft, conformal undersuit to reduce injury and enhance
performance of soldiers. The OpenSim software platform is the Warrior Web's
preferred biomechanical modeling
For those who wish to learn more about the Warrior Web opportunity, DARPA
is holding a Proposers'
Day<https://safe.sysplan.com/confsys/warrior_web_b/>on September 5 in
Arlington, VA.

*Submit your Pilot Project Proposals*
The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) and
OpenSim project at Stanford seek proposals for our pilot project program.
The program awards seed grants to innovative and meritorious projects that
will accelerate the use of simulation in rehabilitation research. Applications
are due by August 30. Read more and learn how to

*Apply to be an OpenSim Fellow*
We are pleased to announce the OpenSim Fellows Program
<http://www.stanford.edu/group/opensim/support/fellows.html>– a new
initiative from the OpenSim project and the National Center for Simulation
in Rehabilitation Research. The goal of the OpenSim Fellows Program is to
cultivate and engage a community of OpenSim experts who will collectively
advance the field of neuro-musculoskeletal modeling and simulation. Read
more and learn how to
