Tad Jones was born in Nottingham and lives in Redhill. He was educated at local schools before going to Liverpool to study pharmacology, St Andrews for a biochemistry PhD, and then returning for a MA in international relations at Nottingham Trent.
Tad is currently working in the healthcare research sector and has a keen interest in science policy. An active member of ALDES (the Association of Liberal Democrat Engineers and Scientists), Tad is passionate about the role science can play in driving economic growth and providing skilled jobs.
“There's a history of innovation in the East Midlands, with Sir Peter Mansfield winning a Nobel prize for his work on MRI, Ibuprofen being developed by Boots, Rolls Royce Engineering and APT. We need to make sure this is part of our future as well by investing in R&D, which is low in the UK compared to other advanced economies. We also need to build on the good work of Liberal Democrats in government, some of which has been undone by the Conservatives since 2015 - promoting apprenticeships, R&D tax credits, evidence-based policy and continuing to support the green investment bank."
Tad has lived and campaigned in Nottingham for eight years, working with local Focus teams on issues that matter to local people.
