Lattice QCD is a well established tool for studying the low energy dynamics of QCD. Precise results with fully controlled uncertainties are available for many single hadron properties and lattice QCD has become a integral part of modern particle physics. In the last few years the first realistic calculations in the two hadron sector have also appeared (although not yet with the same level of systematic control of uncertainties as in the single hadron case) stimulating the interest of the nuclear physics community as well. To become a central part of nuclear physics, lattice QCD must confront the many hadron systems that define nuclear physics. Recent progress towards this goal will be presented.
