We are pleased to announce our Pilot Project Program Awardees for 2014. We
also have news on several upcoming events and programs.

*Pilot Project Awards*
We got an outstanding response to our call for proposals this year. Given
the high caliber of the applicant pool, we carefully reviewed the
applications with the NCSRR Scientific Advisory Board.

We selected two projects for Pilot Awards:

   - Frank Sup, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. An improved
   musculoskeletal model of below-knee amputees to aid in prosthetic design
   - Katherine Steele, University of Washington. Evaluating the theoretical
   and functional impacts of a synergy-based control strategy using OpenSim

We also granted a dozen Outstanding Researcher Awards and Travel Awards,
which include funds to attend an OpenSim workshop.

   - Outstanding Researcher Award Winners: Dennis Anderson, Ray Browning,
   Dominic Farris, Bradley Davidson, Jill Higginson
   - Travel Award Winners: Ajit Chaudhari, Carrie Peterson, Stacie Ringleb,
   Ricardo Matias, Gina Bertocci, Nils Hakansson, Thomas Sugar
