Abstract: I will present the latest constraints on the properties of annihilating dark matter from the CMB and future prospects. I will also discuss the rich science that can be learned from the gravitational lensing of the CMB, including measuring the sum of the neutrino masses, probing primordial gravity waves, and measuring structure growth. I will focus on results from the Atacama Cosmology Telescope Polarimeter (ACTPol), and what we can expect from near-future ground- based experiments, such as Advanced ACTPol, and the planned DOE CMB-S4 project.
