The Stolz-Teichner program is a far-reaching research program that aims to connect QFT to the cohomology of manifolds. Importantly for homotopy theorists, it is expected to provide a cochain model for TMF. In this talk I will sketch some of the broad strokes of the program and describe some of the partial results currently known.
