Then in 1910, he moved to the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York, where he headed a department created for him. He spent summers at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, performing experiments on various marine invertebrates. While there, Loeb performed his most famous experiment, on artificial parthenogenesis.

With this experiment, he was able to cause the sea urchins' eggs to begin embryonic development without sperm. In 1918 he established and became the first editor of the Journal of General Physiology. He is also known for his work in animal tropism (a biological phenomenon, indicating growth or turning movement of a biological organism, usually a plant, in response to an environmental stimulus) and heteromorphosis (where an organ or tissue is different than the expected).
