Hormones are signaling molecules, which are produced in some organs, and transported to receptors in target organs via circulation system for its actions. In vertebrates, there are various class of hormones. Among them, peptide hormone and steroid hormone are representative of hydrophilic and hydrophobic ligands, respectively. They acts on different types of receptors, membrane receptor (peptide hormones) and nuclear receptor (steroid hormones). These hormone/receptor systems contribute to maintain the homeostasis via intracellular signal transduction and transcriptional regulation. Dysregulation of hormone production and its actions underlie the pathophysiological mechanisms in various endocrine disorders. This special issue focused on the recent progression of the researches in biology and medicine of peptide and steroid hormones. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Hunting the novel peptide and steroid hormones
2. Metabolic pathways of peptide and steroid hormones
3. Involvement of peptide and steroid hormones in endocrine disorders
4. Dynamics of hormones in metabolic and reproductive disorders
5. Development and regeneration of the hormone-producing organs
6. Peptide and steroid hormone in therapy
7. Conservation and evolution of peptide and steroid hormones
