Warren was one of the global executives who introduced PillCam® (the worlds first video camera in a pill that you swallow) to the world. PillCam®, marketed under Given Imaging was invented by Technion alumnus, Gavriel Iddan. Given Imaging went from start up in Year 2000 to being sold in 2014 for nearly $1 Billion.
