The discovery of neutrino masses and oscillations proved that, while the Standard Model (SM) is extremely accurate, it is still incomplete. The left-right model is the most natural extension of the SM that can account for measured neutrino masses, while providing an elegant explanation for the origin of parity violation in low-energy weak interactions. In this talk, we look at the possibility of breaking the symmetry of right-handed weak interactions at the TeV scale, and thus having right-handed neutrinos at the TeV scale. We will discuss some features of this class of models as well as their intriguing signatures at the Large Hadron Collider.
