Professor Anthony Ivo served as head of the Cellular and Structural Biology department at Ivy University for over a decade. He was recruited by Dr. Silas Stone to oversee the biotechnology efforts of S.T.A.R. Labs. He pioneered the organic pattern process, the means of creating technology to mimic organic life down to the cellular level. He has had success in developing the A-Maze Operating System that mimics cellular regeneration in test trials with mice. He has been known to disappear for days at a time, consumed with personal projects, which is frowned upon by S.T.A.R. Labs.
Ivo suffers from thanatophobia, the fear of death which often results in panic attacks and drug use.
