Currently, there is no proven neuroprotective or neurorestorative therapy for Parkinson's disease {(PD).} Several advances in the genetics of {PD} have created an opportunity to develop mechanistic-based therapies that hold particular promise for identifying agents that slow and even halt the progression of {PD,} as well as restore function. Here we review many of the advances in the last decade regarding the identification of new targets for the treatment of {PD} based on understanding the molecular mechanisms of how mutations in genes linked to {PD} cause neurodegeneration.
