Speaker: Brian Rebel (Fermilab)

INOS is a currently running long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment with two detectors separated by a distance of 735 km. The detectors are exposed to a high power muon neutrino beam originating at Fermilab. The primary goal of MINOS is the measurement of the parameters governing the disappearance of muon neutrinos between their point of production and the far detector. MINOS has also looked for evidence of electron neutrino appearance in the beam as well as mixing between active and sterile neutrinos. In this talk I will review the most recent oscillation results from MINOS and discuss the prospects for future measurements.
