Hershey became part of their informal network of biologists, known as the Phage group. Hershey began performing experiments with bacteriophages with Italian-American Prima Luria, German Max Delbrück, and observed that when two different strains of bacteriophage have infected the same bacteria, the two viruses may exchange genetic information.

There he and his wife Martha Chase performed the famous Hershey–Chase experiment in 1952.
