Maastricht Endometrium Research Group

For more than two decades, the Maastricht Endometrium Research Group has been studying the human endometrium, its physiology and pathological conditions such as endometriosis, endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer as well.

Central themes of our investigations are:

  • Signalling of estrogens and estrogen receptor;
  • Estrogen metabolism and activity of steroidogenic enzymes;
  • Genetic predisposition to gynaecological disorders;
  • Role of epigenetics in gynaecological disorders.


Our mission is to unveil the possible pathogenic mechanisms involved in the different gynaecological disorders to improve diagnosis, prognosis and therapy.
