For oscillation experiments searching for evidence of CP-violation via accelerator based oscillation experiments, the largest systematic will be the current very poor knowledge of neutrino nucleus interactions.  In this presentation I'll outline the components of this model and show how no model can describe the accumulated experimental measurements.  Brazilian participation in a new proposed experiment at Fermilab can help resolve the problem.

 Jorge Morfin works at Fermilab. Received PhD from University of Michigan. PostDoc at III Physikalisches Institut of the Technishe Hochscule Aachen, Germany on the Gargamelle heavy freon neutrino experiment deeply involved in the discovery of neutral currents.  Stayed at Aachen until became Resarch Professor.

Was called to Fermilab to design the Tevatron Muon Beam and install the Tevatron Muon Experiment (E665) and worked on E594 neutrino experiment.   Was a co-founder of the CTEQ QCD collaboration and started the CTEQ summer schools on QCD analysis and phenomenology that has now been going for nearly 25 years. Joined the SSC B-collider detector experiment and worked on that until the SSC was killed.   Worked on the DONUT experiment that discovered the tau neutrino and MINOS neutrino oscillation experiment.  Then he initiated the MINERvA neutrino-nucleus scattering experiment and was co-spokesperson for 6 years.  He started the MINERvA Latin American initiative to bring five Latin American groups into the MINERvA experiment. Morfin is now creating the NuSTEC (Neutrino Scattering Theory Experiment Collaboration) to bring theorists and experimentalists working on neutrino nucleus scattering physics together.
