Joseph became interested in Tick-borne infections (Lyme disease is not acknowledged in Australia) when his daughter became ill with a mysterious illness that no one was able to diagnose. As a researcher and scientist, he believes that the current research on tick-borne infections needs to be more targeted and focussed on a cure. He is the moderator of numerous Facebook forums focussed on Lyme. He believes all research should be focused on “Cure Lyme, Babesia and Bartonella Now” and this would the best way forward in helping everyone overcome this debilitating disease now. He is leading the Patient Advocacy Group of BioNeoMed and is determined to find a cure.
