The idea of this special issue titled "Molecular biology of human fertility" derives from the desire to create a collection of manuscripts providing new evidence or summarizing the most recent available pieces of evidence on the molecular aspects of the complex mechanisms underlining human fertility. Live birth and before a clinical pregnancy result from a complex interaction of molecular pathways at the level of female and male gametes, their interaction during fecundation, and the development of the embryo before, during, and after implantation. All these mechanisms interact with the surrounding environment present at the level of gonads and male and female bodies, and later at the female genital tract level, from tubes to the endometrium and uterus. The knowledge of this molecular biology underlining human fertility is paramount to understand physiology and pathology, with the ultimate objective of successfully understanding and treating female and male infertility.
This Special Issue aims to publish groundbreaking research and review articles in basic and translational science (immunology, cell biology, genetics, and epigenetics) that may create new scenarios and change our perspective of the topic.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
