Indeed, after the Manhattan Project of the 1940s (one scientist of which was Maurice Wilkins), the UK led the way into research of the structure of DNA during the 1950s, with British-born Francis Crick collaborating with Americanborn James Watson within the Cavendish Laboratory and both Maurice Wilkins and British scientist Rosalind Franklin within Imperial College, with Rosalind Franklin producing a key piece of evidence, allowing Crick and Watson to propose the Double Helix Structure of DNA.
