Short summary
We propose for this special issue an exhaustive review of past and most recent advances on the topic of cell replacement in Parkinson’s disease, describing the different procedures using transplantation of various cell sources as a therapeutic approach and linked therapeutic behavioral and/or functional outcomes. We conclude by opening perspectives on future promising developments for the use of cell-replacement therapy in research and its translation to the clinic.
