Linda George, PSU professor of environmental science, will lead a study of the toxic effects of diesel pollution in Portland. 

Researchers from Portland State University and Reed College will study local diesel exhaust emissions with the aim of identifying neighborhoods most vulnerable to the air pollutant.
