Get Ready For Some New Barbie Dolls

British coronavirus vaccine developer Sarah Gilbert has many science accolades to her credit,  but now shares an honor with Beyonce, Marilyn Monroe and Eleanor Roosevelt: a Barbie doll in her likeness.   Gilbert, a 59-year-old professor at Oxford University and co-developer of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, is one of 6-women in the COVID-19 fight who have new Barbies modeled after them.    Toy maker Mattel is recognizing them with a line of Barbie “role model” dolls.
