Martin Garnett


Martin has lived in the constituency of Erewash for over 35 years. He has been active in local politics as one of the key members in Erewash Liberal Democrats for most of this period. This is the sixth time that Martin has contested the Erewash seat for the Liberal Democrats.

Martin is an Associate Professor in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham, and carries out research on making drugs work more effectively. Martin’s main research interests include work on gene medicines and brain tumour research. He has served on the strategic advisory teams for Nanotechnology and Healthcare with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council one of the main UK science funding bodies.

Martin has a keen interest in education, not just through his job, but he has also been a school governor at Friesland School in Sandiacre for 13 years and has recently been appointed as chairman of the governors.

With these keen interests in health and education, Martin will be campaigning strongly for additional resources for both the National Health Service and Education. He will be particularly fighting to make sure that poorly funded areas like Erewash get their fair share of school funding.
