*Congratulations to the 2014 NCSRR Visiting Scholars*
The NCSRR will host its third Visiting Scholars Program this summer. We
selected two exceptional candidates from a large and highly competitive
pool of applicants based on their outstanding scientific potential, strong
computational skills, and past contributions in modeling and simulation. The
2014 Scholars include James Buffi from Northwestern University and Jason
Moore from Cleveland State University. Read more about the scholars and
their projects here<http://www.stanford.edu/group/opensim/support/scholars.html#2014Scholars>

We also selected several excellent applicants for Outstanding Researcher
Awards. This award recognizes their strong applications and will fund a
visit to an OpenSim workshop, for them and their collaborators. Outstanding
Researcher Award Winners include Wouter Aerts and Hossein Mokhtarzadeh. You
can see the list of Outstanding Researcher Award Winners, along with
several additional workshop travel award winners on the Visiting Scholars

*Scholar in Belgium Makes an Impact with OpenSim*
Wouter Aerts, a student working with Ilse Jonkers at KU Leuven and winner
of an NCSRR Outstanding Researcher Award, received a personal PhD grant to
simulate transtibial amputee gait within Opensim. Wouter will work on
including a contact model between the stump and prosthesis and use these
forces during the simulation in order to assist in prosthetic fitting and
tuning of transtibial amputees. You can check out his
the OpenSim
Gallery of Examples<https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6A56A5846D1FC8EB>

*Let us know if you have cool videos or results to share and we will add
your work to the Gallery of Examples. As always, we also welcome your
feedback to the project and ask for your help answering questions on our
user forum <https://simtk.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=91> and growing the
set of models and simulations available on Simtk.org <http://Simtk.org>.*
