Moris Hju Frederik Vilkins (engl. Maurice Wilkins; Novi Zeland, 15. decembar 19165. oktobar 2004.)[1] je bio engleski fizičar i molekularni biolog. Njegova istraživanja su doprinela naučnom razumevanju fosforescencije, izotopne separacije, optičke mikroskopije i difrakcije X-zraka, kao i razvoju radara. On je najbolje poznat po radu na Kings koledžu u Londonu na strukturi DNK. Kao znak priznanja za njegov rad, on je zajedno sa, Fransisom Krikom i Džejmsom Votsonom nagrađen Nobelovom nagradom za fiziologiju ili medicinu 1962. „za njihova otkrića molekulske strukture nukleinskih kiselina.“[2]
