We are pleased to announce the launch of the Restore Center<http://restore.stanford.edu/>, an NIH-funded center whose mission is to create a worldwide collaboration to gain insights from real-world data on rehabilitation outcomes. You can read more about the Center’s services and our call for pilot project applications below. To get updates on the Restore Center’s activities, be sure to sign up for the mailing list<https://mailchi.mp/176a9dc1d8ba/the-restore-center>, which is separate from this OpenSim mailing list. You can also follow the Center on Twitter at @restore_center.

Thank you to everyone who provided letters of support for our funding application last year. We look forward to continuing our work with the OpenSim community and beyond through this new Center.

Introducing the Restore Center
The Restore Center is one of six centers in the Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource (MR3) Network. Funded by the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the Restore Center will provide vital infrastructure and training to accelerate research using mobile sensor and video technology for real-word monitoring in rehabilitation, including:

  *   Easy-to-use software workflows for rehabilitation researchers to estimate common real-world outcome measures
  *   A pilot project program to fund promising investigators
  *   A fellows program to create hubs of expertise around the country and world
  *   Scientific challenges to foster collaboration between rehabilitation researchers and experts from other domains, such as machine learning and robotics
  *   Online training materials, such as best practice guides and software documentation
  *   Training opportunities, such as multi-day, in-person training workshops and virtual office hours
