Michael Cook BSc London University (Physics and Mathematics) had a career in research, development and production engineering in the semiconductor (computer chip) industry, working in the UK, USA and Japan, where he developed and implanted a broad range technologies over a 35 year career. Retirement to the south coast of England was interrupted by ill health and a diagnosis of Lyme disease in 2009. He has investigated many aspects of the disease resulting in the publication in 2015 of a paper on transmission of the disease that dispelled the myth that it requires 24 or 48 hour of tick attachment. He is co-author of a meta analysis on the accuracy of commercial tests published in 2016, and developed an algorithm based on Bayes theorem which was used in a co-authored a paper that quantified the accuracy of the 2-tier test methodology widely recommended for diagnosis of Lyme disease currently with a publisher. He has worked with patients and UK medical organisations and is a trustee of the Vis-a-Vis charity which has a charter to help educate through symposiums.
