"Recent Results from MINERvA"

Accelerator-based oscillation experiments such as DUNE, T2K and NOvA have the potential to answer 
many big questions in neutrino physics, such as whether neutrino oscillations violate CP symmetry. 
They will do this by observing neutrino interactions with nuclei, and require very precise knowledge 
these interactions. The MINERvA experiment was designed to provide this knowledge, and particularly 
to measure the impact of the nuclear environment in which neutrino interactions happen. The MINERvA 
collaboration is currently engaged in a broad program of measurements of the interactions that occur 
in oscillation experiments. Some of these measurements, and their impact on oscillation experiments, 
will be discussed.
