### Abstract

We review the progress achieved within the last five years in the simulations of lattice QCD, as well as in the analysis for selected quantities probing nucleon structure. In particular, we discuss results on the nucleon electromagnetic form factors, $\sigma$-terms, the momentum fraction carried b quark in the nucleon and the helicity and transversity. All quantities are obtained using simulations generated with quark masses fixed to their physical values. In addition, we review the on-going effort to extract parton distribution functions (PDFs) directly from lattice QCD using the quasi-PDFs approach.

### Report

Recent progress on the study of nucleon structure from lattice QCD and future perspectives by Alexandrou The paper is a well-written review of recent progress in lattice QCD for nucleons, and a suitable representation of the conference talk from the EFB24 conference, and should be published essentially as is. A list of typos noticed during evaluation is given below. These can be fixed in the production stage
