He has written or co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed publications and 20 book chapters. His current research involves clinical and laboratory studies investigating relationships between neural stem cells and brain tumors, quality of life in brain tumor patients, and the impact of anemia on outcome from traumatic brain injury Dr. Litofsky received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School in Houston in 1985, graduating as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha and receiving the National Service Award from Phi Delta Epsilon medical fraternity.
