Funding Acknowledgements

We thank the network operators in all countries and the subjects who kindly accepted to participate in the study. We also acknowledge study investigators and staff who made nonauthorship contributions to the validation study: Monika Moissonnier ( IARC, Lyon, France), Enrichetta Barbieri and Cristiano Tesei ( ISS, Rome), Louise Nadon ( Montreal), Tracey McPhail ( Melbourne), Matthew Carroll ( Sydney). This study was conducted with funding from the European Fifth Framework Program, "Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources'' ( contract QLK4-CT-1999901563), and the International Union against Cancer ( UICC). The UICC received funds for this purpose from the Mobile Manufacturers' Forum and GSM Association. Provision of funds to the INTERPHONE study investigators via the UICC was governed by agreements that guaranteed INTERPHONE's complete scientific independence. The terms of these agreements are publicly available at http://www.iarc.fr/ENG/Units/RCAd.html/. The Australian Centre was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council (EME Grant 219129); Bruce K. Armstrongis supported by a University of Sydney Medical Foundation Program grant and Julianne Brown by an Australian Postgraduate Award. The Cancer Council NSW and The Cancer Council Victoria provided most of the infrastructure for the project in Australia. The Canada Montreal data collection was funded by a grant ( project MOP-42525) from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The other Canadian centres were supported by a university-industry partnership grant (project POP-200102UOP-UI-90605) from CIHR, the latter including partial support from the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association. D. Krewski is the NSERC/SSHRC/McLaughlin Chair in Population Health Risk Assessment at the University of Ottawa.
