I will discuss recent work applying lattice QCD to the study of the interactions of light nuclei from lattice QCD. Calculations of nuclear matrix elements relevant for Standard Model processes such as proton-proton fusion, and neutrinoful double beta decay will be overviewed. The potential for lattice QCD input into new physics searches will also be highlighted with emphasis on calculations relevant for dark matter direct-detection and neutrinoless double beta decay. Prospects for future calculations and extensions will also be discussed
