The Natural Immune System (NIS) is a distributed system that solves challenging search and response problems while operating under constraints imposed by physical space and resource availability. Remarkably, NIS search and response times do not scale appreciably with the physical size of the animal in which its search is conducted. Many distributed systems are engineered to solve analogous problems, and the NIS demonstrates how such engineered systems can achieve desirable scalability. We… 
Immune System Inspired Strategies for Distributed Systems
TLDR
A sub-modular IS architecture in which lymph node number and size both increase sublinearly with body size is shown to efficiently balance the requirements of communication and migration, consistent with experimental data.
Lymph node inspired computing: towards holistic immune system inspired algorithms for human-engineered complex systems
TLDR
It is argued that lymph node inspired computing systems provide powerful metaphors for distributed computing and complement existing artificial immune systems and lead to holistic immune system inspired computing that captures all the complexities and power of the immune system in human-engineered complex systems.
Scale invariance of immune system response rates and times: perspectives on immune system architecture and implications for artificial immune systems
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the lymphatic network of the NIS efficiently balances local and global communication, and a new approach for Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) that uses a sub-modular architecture to facilitate distributed search is suggested.

TLDR
Design principles for Scalable Robust, Adaptive, Decentralized search with Automated Response (Scalable RADAR) in biology are reviewed and how modular search in the immune system can be mimicked or built upon in ALife is discussed.
Scaling in the immune system
TLDR
This work suggests how the physical architecture of the immune system and chemical signals within it may lead to nearly scale-invariant immune search and response, and fits mathematical models to experimental West Nile Virus infection data and investigates how model parameters characterizing the pathogen and the immune response change with respect to animal mass.
A Biologically Inspired Model of Distributed Online Communication Supporting Efficient Search and Diffusion of Innovation
TLDR
This work argues that organization into communities would decrease overall decentralized search times, and introduces the notion of a community size that increases with the size of the system, which is shown to reduce the time to search for information in networks.
The Value of Inflammatory Signals in Adaptive Immune Responses
TLDR
It is found that the inflammation signal localized in a small region of infected tissue dramatically reduces search times, suggesting that these signals play an important role in the immune response, especially in larger animals.
Optimal Strategies for Virus Propagation
TLDR
Questions about whether common viruses have actually settled into an optimum, the role for reliability and whether experimental infections of hosts with non-endemic strains could help elicit answers about viral progression are raised.
Modelling the effects of phylogeny and body size on within-host pathogen replication and immune response
TLDR
This work uses mathematical models of viral time courses from multiple species of birds infected by a generalist pathogen to test more thoroughly how disease progression and immune response depend on mass and host phylogeny and finds that smaller passerine species are more competent in spreading the disease than larger non-passerine species.
An Immune System Inspired Theory for Crime and Violence in Cities
Crime is ubiquitous and has been around for millennia. Crime is analogous to a pathogenic infection and police response to it is similar to an immune response. The biological immune system is also

Dendritic Cell Trafficking: From Immunology to Engineering

Innate control of adaptive immunity via remodeling of lymph node feed arteriole.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that inflammation-induced lymphocyte recruitment to the lymph node is mediated by the remodeling of the primary feed arteriole, and that its physiological role is to increase the efficiency of screening for rare antigen-specific lymphocytes.
