We are designing a nanomaterial-based drug delivery platform to target drugs/vaccines to lymph nodes for enhanced treatment efficacy and reduced side effects. These images showed that small gold nanoparticles (drug delivery vehicles) were found near collagen fibers in the dermis, but not near blood vessels, where most small molecule drugs were able to traverse.
