In these lectures we will discuss the role that minimal submanifolds play in the study of lower curvature bounds. The first lecture will be an introduction to the theory including existence theory and the geometry of the second variation. The second lecture will be a survey of applications especially to lower scalar and isotropic curvature bounds
