ABSTRACT : With the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) about to commence operation, we are on the threshold of one of the most exciting eras in modern particle physics. Although the LHC will almost certainly unveil the secrets of the fundamental nature of matter and forces, the colliding beam particles (protons) are not themselves fundamental. In order to be able to make very precise predictions for what is expected to be observed at the LHC , we need to have a correspondingly precise knowledge of the structure of the proton. The talk will review our current understanding of this proton structure and discuss some implications for the LHC .
