Abstract: Medical research currently involves the collection of large and complex data. One such type of data is functional data where the unit of measurement is a curve measured over a grid. Functional data comes in a variety of forms depending on the nature of the research. Novel methodologies are required to accommodate this growing volume of functional data alongside new testing procedures to provide valid inferences. In this dissertation, I propose three novel methods to accommodate a variety of questions involving functional data of multiple forms. I consider three novel methods: (1) a function-on-function regression for Gaussian data; (2) a historical functional linear models for repeated measures; and (3) a generalized functional outcome regression for ordinal data. For each method, I discuss the existing shortcomings of the literature and demonstrate how my method fills those gaps. The abilities of each method are demonstrated via simulation and data application.
