Abstract: Unanswered questions in neutrino physics may hold the key to understand our Universe's formation and explore Nature beyond the Standard Model. The neutrino oscillation community is engaged in an ambitious program to address open questions in the field through two accelerator-based projects: the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). These experiments make use of intense neutrino beams and the liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) detector technology to image neutrino interactions with unprecedented detail. From calibrations and reconstruction to analysis tools, MicroBooNE has provided a stepping stone for the LArTPC neutrino community. This talk will present the status of MicroBooNE's physics program, highlighting milestones achieved with this experiment, and outline the road ahead for the US accelerator-based neutrino oscillation program.
