Her research has led to the development and implementation of an immune biomarker test for breast cancer, to help manage patients with the advanced disease. This biomarker is now part of routine pathology reporting for breast cancer in many countries, and is included in the World Health Organisation Classification of Tumours: Breast Tumours (also known as the WHO Blue Book on Breast Tumours).


Professor Loi has also made a significant contribution to the first worldwide approval of immunotherapy for patients with the most aggressive type of breast cancer.


The Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science are Australia’s most prestigious awards for outstanding achievements in scientific research, research-based innovation, and excellence in science teaching.


In the name of the entire IBCSG family, we express our sincere congratulation to Professor Sherene Loi for this prestigious award!
