JABSOM’s ANGEL YANAGIHARA looks to solve jellyfish mystery

Researcher Angel Yanagihara continues to learn fascinating details about jellyfish in Hawaiian waters, stopping only long enough to be interviewed by media from around the world, including the Discovery Channel and Nova, who seek her out frequently to document her latest findings.

Dr. Yanagihara’s patented discovery of a family of fluorescent proteins in blue bottle jellyfish may provide a diagnostic tool in medicine; further research into potential commercial applications is being funded partly through a venture capital fund managed by the University of Hawai’i Foundation.

She’s also looking to unlock the mystery of how box jellyfish reproduce, which was the subject of a news report featured on Fox News.
