The connection between QCD and string theory is expected through the gauge/gravity correspondence. Particularly, it predicts that the baryons are discribed by D-branes. (This relation is analogous to the Skyrmion model where the baryons are obtained as solitons, since D-branes are also solitons in string theory.) In this talk, I will review how the D-branes behave as baryons, and discuss our attempt to obtain the nuclear states such as Deuteron and Helium from the branes.
