Efficiently targeting the skin's immunologically sensitive cells holds the promise of advancing (1) immunogenicity of vaccines (through delivery); (2) diagnosis of disease (through extraction of disease biomarkers). The application of practical, commercially-viable physical methods to the achievement of these goals presents unique challenges.
