So, what's the significance of a jellyfish?

The jellyfish is the source of the research that led to humans being able to regenerate.

When Darius and his partner Lesky arrive at Musee Stern in S01E03, Lesky watches a video that explains it all:

Shortly after that moment, the 'ageless' jellyfish is shown --
