Any established supporters of a science of morality?

The wikipedia page for science of morality makes vague mention to people that support the idea that so-called “science” can meaningfully investigate so-called “moral issues”.

Are there any notable scientists or philosophers who have taken up Harris’ suggestion and started talking about a science of morality? Or who have expressed that science can answer moral questions?

Nothing is either good or evil, but thinking makes it so. Now, if only I could get my mind to think it’s “good” to be oppressed, exploited, and intimidated into believing things that I don’t believe…
