Q: How do I find out about famous doctors or scientists who lived around the Bubonic Plague?

Detailed Question -

I can’t find famous doctors or scientists that lived around the Bubonic Plague (Black Death). Do you know of any famous doctors or scientists that lived around that time (1340s-1400s)? I am only asking for names. However, if you can provide more, that would be appreciated.
