In this chapter, novel cell therapeutic avenues for Parkinson's disease (PD) are summarized, and the requirements outlined to bring currently experimental approaches using neural cells generated from pluripotent stem cells to fruition. Specifically, universal principles, recent advancements and ongoing challenges in deriving and characterizing dopaminergic cell populations for successful transplantation in PD, are discussed.
