Dr. Joseph Valentine is a cruel doctor who is revealed to be the head of the NIMH corportion and the secondary antagonist in The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue. He originally used Martin for one of his neurological experiments and brainwashed him to insanity. It wasn't until Timmy made it to NIMH that Martin brainwashed him and made Valentine and the other scientists think that they are dogs.

The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue
- It is unclear if Dr. Valentine is the original scientist who created the Rats of NIHM or what the nature of his research was for (possible medical study, zoology study, biological warfare, black marketing, etc.)
- If Dr. Valentine injected Martin Brisby with the same drugs he experimented with on the Rats of NIMH, then Martin's insanity is partial proof that the NIHM performance enhancer does indeed have a small percent chance of causing its animal patients to exhibit aggressive and violent tendencies as well as a disregard for others.
- He did make humans act like dogs.
- This would then prove that Jenner was most likely affected by this same percentage and logic.
