Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell artificially derived from a non-pluripotent cell. Various methods exist to revert cells to pluripotency such as reprogramming mediated through a mature metaphase II oocyte as in somatic cell nuclear transfer.

Synonyms: iPS cell iPSC
