The Advisory Board was formed to provide counsel and guidance to the
Company and its senior management, CEO Phil Bosua and Chairman and
Founder, Ron Erickson. The Advisory Board is chaired by Know Labs Chief
Medical Officer, James (Andy) Anderson, M.D.

The initial members of the Advisory Board in addition to Dr. Anderson
are G. Alexander (Zan) Fleming, M.D. and David C. Klonoff, M.D.

In assembling the Know Labs Advisory Board, Dr. Anderson remarked, “I
wanted to bring together a team of experienced diabetes, obesity and
cardiovascular disease experts who can guide us as we bring the
remarkable Know Labs technology to the market. I have no doubt we will
be successful and will make a significant difference in people’s lives.
I look forward to the active engagement of the Advisory Board as we
progress toward approval and launch of our first group of non-invasive
UBAND wearable devices including the UBAND Calorie Counter and the first
truly non-invasive UBAND Continuous Glucose Monitor. Our just concluded
meeting at the Know Labs laboratory was extremely productive. We are all
excited by the promise of the Know Labs technology in diabetes and
cardiometabolic disease, and the future expansion into additional health
and wellness, and medical therapeutic areas.”

Dr. Fleming, speaking for the group, said, “We were drawn to Know Labs
by their innovative technology and their exuberant commitment to success
as well as our long term trusted working relationship with Andy
Anderson. We leave our first meeting full of energy and enthusiasm for
the Know Labs technology, its team and its application to human health
and diagnostics. We will give laser focus to assisting with bringing the
UBAND CGM to market as soon as possible.”

The backgrounds of the members of the Advisory Board provide a broad
breadth and depth of experience to guide Know Labs as it first
introduces its non-invasive wearable UBAND Calorie Counter to then be
followed by submission to the US Food and Drug Administration of its
non-invasive wearable UBAND Continuous Glucose Monitor.

Alexander (Zan) Fleming, M.D.

Dr. Fleming is President and Chief Executive Officer of Tolerion, a
biotechnology company developing disease-modifying treatments for Type 1
diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. He is also Founder and Executive
Chairman of Kinexum, a company of professionals from across the world
with diverse expertise in developing drugs, biotech products, medical
devices and digital health technologies. Dr. Fleming received his M.D.
and internal medicine training from Emory University, fellowship
training in endocrinology at Vanderbilt University and metabolism at
National Institutes of Health, where he was a senior fellow.

At the US Food and Drug Administration from 1986-98, Dr. Fleming was
responsible for the therapeutic areas of diabetes, other metabolic and
endocrine disorders, growth and development, nutrition, lipid-lowering
compounds, and reproductive indications. He led reviews of landmark
approvals including metformin, as well as the first statin, human
insulin analog, PPAR-agonist, and growth hormone for non-GH deficiency
indications. Dr. Fleming oversaw clinical review of the earliest biotech
products including human insulin and growth hormone. He helped to shape
FDA policies and practices related to therapeutic review and regulatory
communication. He was a major contributor to FDA’s Good Review Practice
(GRP) initiative and led the committee responsible for education and
training at CDER. He conceived and directed the first FDA pilot project
to utilize the internet for regulatory communication.

Dr. Fleming’s regulatory and technical expertise has been requested in
numerous international settings including the World Health Organization,
where he was on assignment from FDA during 1991-92. Dr. Fleming was a
member of the expert working groups on Good Clinical Practices and
General Considerations for Clinical Trials of the International
Conference on Harmonization (ICH) and participated on other ICH
committees including the Common Technical Document working group.

Dr. Fleming is lead author of the book, Optimizing Development of
Therapies for Diabetes
. He has frequently published scientific
articles and book chapters, the most recent chapter, “Regulatory
Considerations for Early Clinical Development,” is in Translational
Research Methods for Diabetes, Obesity and Cardiometabolic Drug
Development
, published by Springer in January 2019. He has been a
member of many corporate and advisory boards to academic and commercial
institutions and professional societies. He serves on the joint
technology working groups of the European Association for the Study of
Diabetes and American Diabetes Association.

Dr. Fleming coined the term, Metabesity, which refers to the
constellation of diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease,
neurodegenerative and the aging process itself, all of which share
common metabolic root causes and potential preventive therapies. He
organized the first Congress on Metabesity in London in October 2017,
which will be followed by the second Congress in Washington, D.C. in
2019.
