Between 1990 and July 2004, Dr. Hayward was the Chairman, President and CEO of The Collaborative Group, Ltd., a provider of products and services to the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and consumer-product industries based in Stony Brook, New York. Dr. Hayward has not executed a written employment agreement in connection with his appointment as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors, nor in connection with his service as Chief Executive Officer, and currently receives no cash compensation for his services to us.
Dr. Hayward does not have family relationships with any director, executive officer, or other person nominated or chosen to become directors or officers.

The promissory note may be converted at Dr. Hayward’s option into shares of our common stock at a price of $0.50 per share, and automatically converts one year from the date it was issued into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $0.15.
