The endometrium has been the subject of intense research in a variety of clinical settings, because of its importance in the reproductive process and its roles in women’s health. In the past 15 years, significant efforts have been invested in defining the molecular phenotype of the receptive phase endometrium. Although this has generated a wealth of information on the molecular landscape of human endometrium during the receptive phase, there is a need to complement this information in light of the novel methodologies and innovative technical approaches. The focus of this International Journal of Molecular Sciences Special Issue is on molecular and cellular mechanisms of endometrium and endometrium-related disorders. Research papers and review articles covering the progress made in molecular actions of steroids, metabolism of steroids and intracrinology, endometrial intracellular pathways, ‘omics’ of endometrium will be included. In addition, articles and reviews on molecular alterations underlying endometrium-related pathologies will be covered.
