Vilijam Tomas Astburi (ili Bil Astburi; 25. februara 1898, Longton4. jun 1961, Lids) je engleski fizičar i molekularni biolog. On je bio pionir u istraživanjima primene difrakcije X-zraka na biološke molekule. Njegov rad na keratinu je uspostavio fondaciju za Linus Paulingovo otkriće alfa heliksa. On je takođe studirao strukturu DNK.
