Description James Vaughn Warren (1915-1990) was an internationally renowned cardiologist and the former Chair of Medicine at The Ohio State University from 1961-1979.

Warren graduated from The Ohio State University in 1935 with a B.A. in chemistry and from Harvard Medical School in 1939 with his medical degree. He served in residency at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston and later taught medicine at Emory University Medical School, Duke University Medical School, University of Texas Medical School and The Ohio State University.

Warren gained worldwide recognition for 50 years of work in cardiovascular research and for his important contributions to the understanding and prevention of sudden cardiac death. He authored many scientific and educational publications dealing mostly with congestive heart failure and blood flow. He was one of the first physicians to use cardiac catheterization for diagnosing heart problems and helped to define the mechanisms of congestive heart failure. In 1988 he was honored by this Columbus USA Association in his native city of Columbus for his creation of the Heartmobile, a coronary emergency unit that is credited with saving thousands of lives in the city.
