After publication of this work [1], we noted errors in grant funding acknowledged. NIEHS R01 HD31544 is an incorrect number and should be replaced with NIEHS R01 ES013527; NIEHS 1P01 ES02284401 contains a typo and should be changed to NIEHS P01 ES022841. Finally, USEPA P20 STAR RD83467801 and RD 83543601 are inconsistent with grant numbers listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s database. The correct numbers are USEPA P20 STAR R834678 and USEPA R835433.

The corrected Acknowledgements have been included in full in this erratum.




The authors gratefully acknowledge helpful discussions and contributions from Dr. Jerrold Heindel and Dr. John Bucher throughout the process and conduct of the round robin and for the support they offered from NIEHS and NTP. We also thank Mr. Matthew Friesen, Mr. Ke Huang, and Ms. Guannan Li for technical assistance. We acknowledge contributions from numerous scientists that participated in the earliest discussions of how to design a round robin analysis including Drs. Shanna Swan, Richard Stahlhut, Wade Welshons, Antonia Calafat, and Daniel Doerge. Finally, we acknowledge grant funding: NIEHS R21ES017763, R21ES017763 NON ARRA SUPP A112807, NIEHS R01 ES013527, NIEHS P01 ES022841, NIEHS P20 ES018135, NIEHS R01 ES017005, NICHD R01 HD021341 and USEPA P20 STAR R834678 and USEPA R835433.
